Types of System
Central Air Conditioner
If you have a large home, creating the most comfortable environment across multiple rooms can be daunting. A central air conditioning unit is a great way to keep multiple rooms cool at once. It regulates the air in your home through the installation of ducts that removes warm air from inside the house and replaces it with cool air from outside. We can even help you set up a programmable thermostat with your central air conditioning unit to give you that smart home experience.
Ductless Mini Split
A ductless mini-split air conditioning unit is a great choice to cool a small area. These air conditioners are usually wall-mounted and come equipped with air blowers. They can be installed or used in individual rooms, so these air conditioning units are energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. They do not have to regulate the temperature of a whole house, but just the room where they are mounted. However, if you are planning to install one in each room, this air conditioning option can be pretty expensive. We can help you set up smart air conditioning, allowing you to operate your unit from anywhere with your phone.
Window Air Conditioner
This type of air conditioning unit comes in various sizes, suiting anywhere from a single room to a small, single-story home. It is among the most commonly used unit, and with good reason. They are installed in a window or by making a hole in the wall, so saving space and maintenance are easy. They are also inexpensive to buy and operate.
Portable Air Conditioner
This free-standing air conditioner is convenient as it is portable. It only requires a power outlet and access to a window to funnel air out of the house.
Floor Mounted Air Conditioner
These air conditioners are convenient if you prefer the workings of a mini-split air conditioner but don’t have the required space for a wall-mounted unit. If you have respiratory issues such as asthma, this unit is ideal. Keep air quality as clean as possible with easily accessible air filters.
Ductwork distributes airflow from either the heating or cooling system throughout your home. The air conditioner sucks air in, heating or cooling it, then pushed through the ducts to regulate your home’s temperature.
