Have you thought about upgrading your home's central air conditioning system? Maybe you're building a new home and need a new heating and cooling unit installed? Well, you are in the right place. Here you will find information about the various types of heating and air conditioning systems available and what you should think about before making the purchase. Let's discuss the different types of home heating units.

The HVAC professional can recommend different kinds if air conditioning for different applications. The choice of the heating system to get will depend on many factors. The basic types of air conditioners include:

 

Split Air Conditioner
The split air conditioning system comprises of two key parts that are the outdoor unit and the indoor unit. An outdoor unit which is fitted outside contains the compressor, expansion valve and the condenser while the indoor unit provides the cooling coil or the evaporator coil and the cooling fan. If your house does have a furnace but no ac unit, a split air conditioner is easily the most economical air conditioner to install. The split AC system does not take much space.

Things you should know before purchasing a split air conditioning unit

a. HVAC service professional
Installing the split system is more complex compared to window air conditioner. For instance, you will have to run the lines to coolants and the electricity. It is a good idea to hire a professional to install one for you.

b. Weather resistant
Split AC system is designed to withstand things snow or harsh weather with less or no problems.

c. Zones
A mono zone split AC system might not be adequate to keep multiple rooms in your house. This means that you might need to purchase one that is a dual or triple zone for efficient cooling. You will have to use more money, but you will avoid buying the unit that does not work for your entire home. Ideally, you will need one handler per room in the home.

 

Window Air Conditioner
This air conditioning system is the most commonly used AC unit for single rooms. Window air conditioner contains the compressor, evaporation coil, condenser and the cooling coil.

Things to consider
a. Cooling Capacity
The window air conditioner with too little BTU strength will run consistently attempting to cool a huge space thus using a lot of energy. The window air conditioner that is too large for space will not cool and dehumidify your room evenly, leaving your room uncomfortable. It is smart to calculate the size of the room you intend to cool in square feet. For instance, a window air conditioner with 14,000 BTU power tends to cover a room of around 500 to 7000 square feet.

b.Energy efficiency
Window air conditioner is more economical compared to the central air conditioner which tends to be a bit higher. They are less expensive to purchase and operate. When buying this kind of conditioner, ensure the EER is greater ensuring that the air conditioner is more efficient. A window air conditioner with EER of about 10.0 is the best and cost saving.

c. Maintenance
The window air conditioner requires periodic maintenance to keep it in top condition. They might be vulnerable to the outside dirt and debris which tend to accumulate inside. The dust and the debris will form up on the air filter of the AC unit over time. This debris and dust will eventually combine thus reducing the effectiveness of the air conditioner.

d. Installation
Most window air conditioners models are built to fit inside the standard double hung windows. They are easy to install you just need to follow the installation guide provided.

 

Packaged Air Conditioner
The HVAC will tend to recommend the packaged air conditioner if you need to cool more than one room or the larger space at your house or office. It comes with two possible arrangements. The first one contains the compressor, condenser, evaporation coil and the evaporator which are included in a single box.

Things to consider when purchasing a Packaged Air Conditioner
a. Size
When buying a packaged air conditioner, your first goal is to decide if the unit is massive enough to heat and cool your room sufficiently. This type of air conditioner is capable of regulating air temperature in more than one room.

b. Cost
Packaged Air Conditioners are known to be cheaper to purchase, install and run compared to the central air conditioner.

c. Coverage area
The packaged air conditioner tend to occupy a small space compared to the central air conditioner. The cooled air is pushed by a high-capacity blower. The cooled air travels through the air ducts which are connected to the various rooms. The second arrangement contains the compressor and the condenser which are housed in a single casing. The compressed air passes via individual units which are composed of cooling coil and the expansion valve located in several rooms.

 

Central air conditioning system
This air conditioning unit is typically used for cooling large buildings, offices, houses, movie theaters, factories and much more. The central air conditioner has a large compressor that can give hundreds of tonnes of the air conditioning. This AC system circulates cooled air through a supply system air ducts and return vents. Supply ducts, openings in the walls, ceiling or the floors, carry cooled air from the air conditioner throughout your home.

Things to consider
a. The Central AC size
Ensure the central air conditioner is big enough to cool your home but not so huge it wastes energy. It would be wise to request a HVAC contractor to come to your house to do the load calculation. The HVAC contractor can consider the size of the home in square feet, and other factors to decide the right size unit.

b. Energy efficiency
Regarding the high cost of energy, HVAC systems are expensive to maintain and operate. When choosing the central air conditioner, ensure the model has a SEER rating of about 13 and above. When the SEER is higher, the air conditioner tends to be more efficient.

c. Maintenance
Many of the central air manufacturers generally recommend a yearly maintenance. It is a good idea to consider having a HVAC maintenance contract with a trusted contractor capable of heading off potential central AC problems before they become serious.

d. Installation
Find the HVAC installer who will come and install the air conditioning system for you. The HVAC contractor will provide you with the make and model of central air conditioner that is the best fit for your home.
