Window units, swamp coolers, and other types of air conditioners may work for small homes. But there are some key benefits of installing a central AC instead.
Central air conditioning units:
There are two main types of central air conditioners: split system and packaged unit. We'll describe both types in detail to help you choose the right unit for your home.
Without getting too technical, split system air conditioners have one indoor component and one outdoor component that contain different parts.
The indoor unit contains the evaporator coil and may also house the furnace or air handler. The outdoor unit contains the compressor, condenser coil, and expansion coil. A series of tubes connect the indoor and outdoor units.
Here are a few split system AC pros and cons.
As its name implies, the packaged unit contains all the parts of the AC in one unit. This unit is typically installed on the roof or next to the home.
Pros and cons of packaged unit air conditioners
Typically, a central AC unit lasts for 10 to 15 years.
First, consider whether you already have a furnace. Split system AC units are the best choice for Denver homes that already have a furnace installed. Packaged units may be better for smaller homes or apartments. Your Denver AC installation specialist can recommend the right unit for your needs and budget.
Annual AC maintenance is best for keeping your AC unit in good shape. Detecting problems early cuts AC repair costs and extends the lifespan of your air conditioner. Your Denver AC repair specialist will also inspect the ducts and repair any air leaks.
