If you’re on the hunt for a new AC unit for your family, whether it’s a replacement or going into a new construction home, you need to narrow down which type of AC you want before you start shopping. The details that go into the right AC are the size of your home in square feet, the number of people in your household, your lifestyle, allergy concerns, and your budget. It can feel like a lot to consider! Plus there are brands and different efficiency ratings to consider.
That’s where a good contractor comes in, you need someone who can give you the practical considerations, help you find the best deal, and give you the inside scoop as a professional. When you’ve been in the industry for a number of years, you see which brands and models last and which ones don’t perform. The owners of Efficiency Heating, Cooling & Fireplaces, Darcy and Mike, have been in the industry since 1985, making 32 years of expertise. When you need help with air conditioning service in Martensville, SK whether it’s a replacement, repair, or maintenance care, Darcy and Mike’s small team will deliver. Here’s a breakdown of the two main types of ACs on the market today: split air and central air conditioning units.
Split air or ductless systems are making a lot of headway in the AC industry. More and more businesses are turning to split air for office buildings. Worldwide, homeowners enjoy split air systems for their quick response and quiet airflow. They are easier to install when you don’t have ductwork, as they only require a small hole in the wall for the condenser to remove water humidity from the air. Wall-mounted, small rectangular units, can be somewhat obtrusive to decor, making them less desirable to some homeowners. Ductless systems are installed for each room or zone of the home or office building and allow a more customized approach. With the touch of a remote, you can change the direction of the airflow and fine-tune the temperature. They are also highly efficient, but that does come with a higher price when installing several units around a home or commercial building.
Central or forced air systems have long held the number one spot for AC choices in the United States. As Americans, we like the unobtrusive design and whole-home heating and cooling options. Couple that with the fact that most US homes already have ductwork in place and you have a cheaper replacement option than switching to split air units. The range of efficiency levels lets you customize the price for a new model as well as lower your electric bills when you go for high-efficiency units. Generally, we advise you to go for the highest efficiency model you can comfortably afford at the time, as you’ll save more money over the long haul with energy bills and get something well-made.
