Why You Need MaxCare’s Heating & Cooling’s AC Installation Services
We all know the toils extreme heat can have on a home, whether the temperatures are too unbearable to work in or children and the elderly are exposed to health-risking high temperatures. While you may need to decide if you need to repair or replace, there are many reasons you may be looking to invest in an air conditioner.
Most ACs have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, and toward the end of these years, the AC is tired and there may be some damage that can’t be repaired. However, some repairs may be achievable yet expensive. In these cases, it may be more cost-efficient to purchase and install a new air conditioner.
If your current air conditioner is causing extremely high energy bills, it may have been installed incorrectly or require maintenance. Or it could be the wrong unit for your home. In these cases, you should consider installing a new unit or calling us for maintenance on your existing AC.
Another reason to consider investing in a new unit is due to the air quality of your current model not being up to standard. If you notice that the air quality in the house doesn’t feel right, consider installing a new air conditioner.
Put briefly, consider installing a new AC if:
- You’ve had your current unit for over 12 years.
- Your energy bills are too high.
- Repairing is more expensive than replacing.
- The air quality in your home isn’t up to standards.
Types of Air Conditioners
Your AC needs are unique to your home; each house or apartment requires specific measurements to determine which air conditioning unit will efficiently cool down the insides. Our experts will determine which AC is best for you by examining the square footage of your home, total volume, and insulation along with various other factors.
We will recommend the best option for your specific needs after an assessment of your home; however, as an idea, here are a few types of air conditioners and how they function:
Central Air Conditioners
Central air conditioner units can cool down your home using refrigeration technology. This air conditioner is equipped to cool down the whole house using two components: an indoor unit that attaches to the furnace and an outdoor unit consisting of a compressor and condenser.
The cool air—on this type of air conditioner—is blown through air ducts throughout your home, creating an invisible cooling system.
- Contains built-in filters for continuous clean air.
- Evenly distributes cool air throughout the home.
- Has the option of using a programmable thermostat to save on energy bills.
These units are the most expensive and may produce some noise near the unit outside. If you invest in the wrong unit, you may have problems, and this is why our experts will determine the correct size for your home needs.
If the unit is too big, it can waste energy. This happens because the AC finishes its cycle early since the thermostat reaches the set temperature too quickly, resulting in the AC switching off. Since the cool air hasn’t adequately permeated the structures within the house, the unit will turn on soon after as the thermostat temperature rises. This constant on and off runs up the energy bill.
In the case of a small unit, it may overrun to try and cool a bigger house, again wasting energy.
Our experts will be sure to advise you on the correct unit for your home’s specific needs.
Portable Air Conditioner
Portable AC units are designed for closed rooms and for situations where you require a mobile air conditioner. This type is set on wheels to enable portability and uses the humidity in the room to create cool air.
These units are suitable for homes and apartments that cannot install a window unit due to structural limitations. Portable AC’s only require a pipe to expel the hot air from the room via a window.
- Easy to install.
- Portable to different rooms in the house.
- More cost-efficient than central air conditioners.
- Can be packed up and moved if you move house.
Despite taking up floor space and causing unwanted noise, since it is situated inside your home, it may be the better option for your situation. Our expert technicians will help you make the right decision.
Window Air Conditioner
Window air conditioning units are perfect for cooling down a single room that has adequate window space. The unit is installed so the cool air dispenser sits inside with the hot air expelled from the outside half of the unit.
- Easy to install and uninstall.
- Does not require floor space in the room.
- Relatively small and less expensive than a portable AC.
These units take up window space, so you may lose out on a window entirely depending on your window size. Also, not all window structures support these air conditioners.
Window air conditioners need to be installed properly to prevent air from leaking through gaps around the unit. Our technicians always ensure correct sealing around the unit to prevent this.
