It is good to have air conditioning in your home especially during the hot summer months. During this time of the year people usually stay in the living room, go out to the theater, or go to the shopping mall – anything to feel the cool air. This makes you feel that you need an air conditioning unit in your home. One of the challenges of home owners wanting to purchase air conditioning for their homes is the large selection and types of air conditioning units you can buy. Below are some of the different type of units available to help you make your purchasing decision a little easier.
The window air conditioning units are made to fit right inside a window and will cool one to two rooms. These units save both energy and money. Installation for this type of air conditioning unit is easy and fast. Whatever window style you have, this air conditioning unit will most likely fit in it.
Another type of air-conditioning unit which is similar to the window type is through the wall air conditioning units. In this type you pre-cut space within a wall to put the air conditioning unit in. Like window units, these are perfect for cooling down one to two rooms worth of space. Unlike the window unit which is easy to install, this type take more work in installing and it takes more time. IN order to insert the wall unit, there is a need to cut a hole in your exterior walls.
For business, offices, and hotels, the package terminal air conditioning units or PTAC units are ideal. They are self contained units that cool larger areas than window units. This type of air conditioning unit can also be converted into a heater for the winter months. With a PTAC unit you are able to control the setting for each room because of owner controls.
The ductless split is another type of air conditioning unit. The design of this unit is a split design but its construction is similar to central air conditioning units. This system is easier and more affordable to install than the central system. In this type, there is one unit that acts as the air handler and sis put inside the house while the other unit is the compressor piece that stays outside the house. Depending on the size of your home, you may need more than one air handler, but there will always only be one compressor. Your best option is to put one air handle in every room. A handler can be used for more than one room for areas that are open and wide.
