As the summer weather begins to heat up, you may find that your window air conditioning unit is having a difficult time combating Mother Nature. The room with your window unit may be reasonably cool, but what about the rest of your home?
If you want to beat the heat this summer and upgrade your comfort level, perhaps it’s time to consider a central air conditioning unit. A central air conditioning system can offer multiple benefits that will make your life easier and more comfortable. Here’s why you should contact an HVAC professional about central air installation this summer.
Lower the Temperature Throughout Your Home
A window air conditioner is only capable of blowing air into the room in which it is installed. You may be able to circulate some of this air with the help of a ceiling fan, but in general, the further away from the AC you go, the warmer it will get.
A central air conditioning system circulates air throughout the entire home through your duct work. Once the system gets going, you’ll find that every room of the house is roughly the same temperature. This will offer you and your family greater comfort throughout the house when compared with a window unit.
Lower the Amount of Noise You Have to Deal With
Most traditional window air conditioners can be quite loud. When a window unit is running at full blast, you may have to turn up the television or speak much louder than you normally would.
A central air conditioning system is much quieter by comparison. While the central air unit itself might make some noise, it will be located outside of the house where you can’t hear it. You might hear a bit of noise as the air moves through your duct system and makes its way out of your vents, but this will be a significant improvement when compared with your window unit.
Lower the Amount of Dust and Allergens in the Air
As your window air conditioning unit brings in air from outside, it may also bring in dust and allergens along with it. A filter for your window unit may help, but it won’t be nearly as effective as the filters used within a central air system.
Your new central air unit can filter everything from dust to pollen to lint before it sends the air into your duct work and out of your vents. You will likely find that a central air unit can provide cleaner air throughout the home when compared with a window unit. This may reduce the chances of getting sick or triggering an allergic reaction.
Lower Your Energy Bills with a Programmable Thermostat
When you install central air conditioning, you will also have an opportunity to install a new programmable thermostat. This will allow you to turn your central air system on or off depending on your needs. You can make sure it is on and running while you are home but turned off while you are at work or on vacation.
Being able to set your central air to a set schedule may help significantly reduce your energy bill. You’ll no longer have to keep your window unit running all day in order to keep the house cool for when you return home.
Install central air this summer and enjoy the perks that come with a system that can cool your entire house evenly. You’ll no longer have to shout to make yourself heard over the sound of a loud window AC and you may be able to lower your energy costs as well.
