The Different Types of Air Conditioning Systems You Can    Choose From

You have a few air conditioning options available to you when you choose a new air conditioning system for your home or organization. It is one of the most important decisions to make for your building. In this post, we will talk about the options you have. Each system has its strengths and weaknesses and it is good to stay informed regarding them.

Window Air Conditioner

Formally known as a unitary system, window air conditioners come with all the necessary parts, which include the condenser, compressor, expansion valve, among others. These air conditioners are placed on top of window frames, hence the name. However, they can also be placed in measured openings

made in the exterior wall (not recommended though). These air conditioners are one of the cheapest options available to you.

Portable Air Conditioners

Another unitary system, these air conditioners are mobile units and are self-contained (that is they have all the necessary components). You will like these systems for their convenience because you can move them around from room to room. They pull in air, take away the heat, and then release cool air into the area. They are underpowered compared to installed larger air conditioning systems and are effective for an area under 500 square feet.

Split system air conditioning

You’ll find these installed in individual rooms. They work fast in conditioning the air. In a split system, the compressor is installed outside your house with a fan. Split air conditioning systems are wall mounted or may even be floor-standing units. Split systems are known for their noise reduction quality which makes them a more comfortable choice for your house.

Multi-split Air conditioner

These air conditioners can cool up to five rooms and are perfect for homes that have a limited space for ducts. You can tailor each room to your cooling specifications with this system. Multi units are connected to a single external compressor. These air conditioning systems are an economical option for their low running costs. The internal units come in a variety of solutions as well, ranging from duct connected, floor standing to ceiling suspended options.

Ducted Air Conditioning Systems

Ducted systems are perfect for conditioning the air of your entire home. They require an outdoor unit and a concealed indoor unit, hidden in the floor or in the ceiling. Ducting is flexible, releasing air through vents throughout your building. You can tailor the system’s installation to your building of choice. Of the entire system, only the grilles and the controllers are visible in your building, which adds to the aesthetic design you may be looking for, while also adding to the value of your home. Finally, you can manage the entire structure of heating and cooling to your preferred specifications and utilize zone controlling to maximize energy efficiency.
