What are the different types of cooling?

There are four types of cooling systems available for your home:

  • Central Air Conditioner

A central cooling system utilizes a network of air ducts throughout your home to funnel cool air to multiple rooms.

  • Ductless Split System

A ductless split cooling system is installed outside your home, providing cool air directly from the unit to your room. These individual units are quiet when operating and allow you to control the individual temperature in each room if you have multiple installed.

  • Heat Pumps

Heat pumps work by removing heat from the air or ground before pumping the heat throughout your home. However, in the summer months, it can extract heat from your indoor living space before pushing it outside to cool down your home.

  • Evaporator Air Conditioners

Evaporator cooling systems employ a fan that draws air from the outside before pulling it through moist pads. The air is cooled by evaporation through these pads and then distributed throughout your home.

How Does Central Air Conditioning Work?

A central air conditioner operates by utilizing your home’s furnace system to pull warm air in your home into your home’s ductwork. As the air is frittered across the unit’s evaporator coil, located above your furnace, the heat in the air is removed. This ultimately causes all the air to cool down. The heat that is removed is then strategically absorbed into what is known as a refrigerant fluid that runs throughout the unit’s coil system. This substance is then pushed to the condenser.

This condenser is typically located outside your home in a separate cabinet. Further, the condenser removes the heat by expelling outwards into your yard. Lastly, the cooling refrigerant is then transmitted back inside your home through the ductwork to begin the cooling process all over again. Over time, this innovative cooling process cools down your home quickly and is an energy-efficient way to control the temperature throughout your home during warmer months of the year.

What are the benefits of Central Air Conditioning?

Are you considering installing air conditioning in your home but aren’t sure whether it’s worth the investment? Here are some of the advantages you can experience with a central air conditioning unit in your home:

  • Homeowners can effectively cool several areas of their home at once
  • Central air conditioning units reduce humidity levels throughout your home to deter the development of mold
  • Installing a central air conditioning unit in your home can improve your indoor air quality
  • Central air conditioning units have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years before needing to be entirely replaced
  • Installing a central air conditioning unit in your home is a cost-effective way to cool your home without significantly increasing your monthly energy bill
  • Central air conditioning units are relatively low maintenance
  • These units can increase the value of your home
  • Central air conditioning units are easy to use
  • These types of air conditioning systems are quieter than portable units

What Are the Different Types of Central Air Conditioners?

There are two different types of central air conditioning units you can install in your home:

  • Split Air Central Conditioning System

A split air conditioning system consists of two separate units. The first unit is an outdoor cabinet that contains a condenser and compressor. The second unit is located within your home and consists of an evaporator. If you already have a furnace installed into your home and are looking to install a central air conditioning unit, then a split a/c unit is ideal as the unit’s evaporator coil needs to be installed within the supply duct of your furnace.

  • Packaged Central Air Conditioning System

A packaged central air conditioning system consists of one unit that contains the evaporator, compressor, and condenser. This cabinet is typically installed on the roof of your home or on the ground level of your property on your home’s exterior. Their ducts located throughout your home that connect the air supply connect directly to the air conditioning unit.

Dorothy Crosson - Google Review

"My experience with Wardlaw Heating and Cooling was beyond 5 stars (again). Their Comfort Advisor (Steve F.) was helpful and knowledgeable. Using his expertise the best product was purchased to fit my need. Steve continues to support my questions and that is what you call “service after the sale”. Their Installers (Norm N. and Kevin W.) did an awesome job installing the product and were very informative.
Thank you again Wardlaw!!"
