Exploring The Importance Of Air Conditioner Maintenance

Hello, my name is Darby Aldrich. I would like to talk to you about the importance of maintaining your air conditioning system. When I moved to a hot climate, I did not realize how vital having a running air conditioner was for living comfortably. When the unit just stopped working one day, the temperature inside the house rivaled the piping hot weather outdoors. We had to go to the community center to keep the kids from feeling sick. While we were gone, we had a local HVAC contractor fix the unit. She let us know that some simple maintenance tasks would prevent that situation in the future. I will use this site to closely explore those tasks in great detail. I hope you can use the information to keep your air conditioner running like new. Thanks.

Ductless AC: Is It the Best Choice for Residential Properties?


There are many ways to go about cooling your home. The most cost-effective and eco-friendly choice is going to differ from home to home. Some homes might be efficiently cooled using ductless AC systems, while others need to be powered by a central AC system. There are many great arguments for using ductless AC systems. This article takes a close look at their most important drawbacks and advantages. It should help you decide which will work best on your property.

The Most Convenient Choice

The best thing about ductless AC systems is that they are extremely accessible. You can pick them up and just about any home improvement or large retail store. By the end of the day, you can easily have your system up and running on your own. That is, you don't need any special HVAC training to install a ductless AC unit. Portable units are the easiest to install because they just need to be plugged in and set anywhere in the room. Window units are more effective, but they are a little harder to install. They need to be plugged in, but they also need to be set into the open sash. This is easy, but the units are a bit heavy.

Powering Ductless Systems

Ductless AC systems are easy to use because they just need to be plugged in. However, since they are 100% powered by electricity (and not gas or forced air), they use a lot of power. If you only need one unit in your home, it won't use that much power. But if you are trying to cool multiple rooms throughout your home with multiple units, the cost can start to mount up. Additionally, if you are using fans to circulate the air better, you are going to use even more electricity.

Filtering and Energy Efficiency

It is important to note that the filtering systems in ductless units usually aren't as effective central AC systems. Furnaces and ducts have better, larger filters that block more allergens, dust, and mold. In the long run, central AC systems are more energy efficient. They can cool your home much more evenly and use less electricity. Gas and hybrid furnaces connected to central cooling and heating systems are very efficient, and they can cool your home much quicker.

In the end, central AC is better for larger homes with multiple rooms. If you just need to cool down a couple of rooms, a ductless unit can definitely get the job done. Talk to a local contractor aboutHVAC installation in your home today.
