Air conditioners can make your space more livable. They lower the temperature in a room or area, filter the air, and remove excess moisture from the space. There are different types of air conditioning for different sizes of homes.
How do you find the right air conditioning option for your home? There are a few things to consider when choosing what type of air conditioning system to buy. It depends on factors like the size of your living space and your budget.
Window Air Conditioning
A window air conditioning system is ideal for studio apartments or single rooms. You will want there to be an easily accessible window to install this type of air conditioner. This type of air conditioner is more portable. If you are living somewhere temporarily, you can take your window air conditioner to your next home.
Window air conditioners are easy to install and relatively easy to maintain. This type of air conditioner is also an affordable option for smaller spaces. Some window air conditioning units can also have a heating function.
The window air conditioner can cool a single room, but larger spaces may need more. You may also try installing two window air conditioners for a larger room or space if you need it to be cooler.
Split Air Conditioning
Split air conditioners have two separate units. There is an indoor unit and an outdoor unit to this type of air conditioning system. The indoor unit includes the cooling coil and fan or just an evaporator. The outdoor unit in a split system includes the compressor, condenser, and the expansion valve.
Split air conditioners work for living spaces of one to two rooms, depending on the size of each room. Split air conditioners are not as visually noticeable as window air conditioners. If you want to stay cool but still be able to open and close your window, a split air conditioner may be a better option for you.
Packaged Air Conditioning
A packaged air conditioner is a great option for spaces that consist of more than two rooms or have a significant amount of square footage. Packaged air conditioners can be found in homes and restaurants. Get the most out of your HVAC system by using zoned air conditioning. This way you can control the temperature in separate areas of your home and save on your monthly energy bill!
There are packaged air conditioners with water cooled condensers and ones with air cooled condensers. Packaged ACs with water cooled condensers require a continuous flow of water. Many people opt for packaged ACs with air cooled condensers because it can be tough to keep a continuous flow of water.
Central Air Conditioning
Central air conditioning is meant for large buildings like offices, movie theaters, and malls. A central air conditioning system may be too large for your personal home, but this can be a great option for your office building.
