Types of Home Air Conditioners

Air conditioners are highly valuable electrical appliances used in homes, offices, commercial buildings, and shopping stores. Although air conditioning is the integral unit, it takes up significant energy consumption. According to the US Department of Energy, 75% of homeowners have an air conditioning unit installed of one type or another. Another report highlights that air conditioners installed in the home and offices use 6% of the total electricity produced in the country.

As your home’s comfort and energy consumption significantly depend on the air conditioners, it is vital to make the right choice. If you’re unsure what air conditioner you should install in your home, we’ve got you sorted! This write-up will share some of the common types of home air conditioners available in the market. This guide will help you make a qualified decision about your next cooling system.

Types of air conditioners

Common Types of Home Air Conditioners

  1.     Central Air Conditioning System

Central air conditioning is a convenient choice to cool multiple rooms or areas of your home at a time. This type of cooling unit uses split systems to regulate the airflow through a duct installed in your home. Central air conditioning systems are also known as ducted HVAC systems.

The central air conditioning system has two main units: outdoor and indoor. The system utilizes modern HVAC technology and a programmable thermostat to provide the best cooling experience.

Advantages of Central AC System

  •         Makes the overall environment more comfortable by decreasing the effect of humidity
  •         Cools multiple rooms connected to the ducts at once

Central SC system is highly efficient but consumes much energy, resulting in higher energy bills.

  1.     Window Air Conditioning System

Window air conditioners are the most convenient option to cool your small home or larger apartments. You will find these types of air conditioners in different sizes, which can be selected depending on the size and requirements of your home.

Many homeowners prefer window air conditioners due to their extraordinary cooling capacity. They are much simpler to install and maintain, as you can install them in the window or by making a hole in the wall.

Advantages of Window AC

  •         Easy to install and maintain
  •         Less expensive to operate
  •         Consume less energy

Window air conditioners are the greatest option to make your home more comfortable, but they can be noisy during operation.

  1.     Portable Air Conditioning Systems

You will find portable air conditioners in the market that are easily movable at your convenience. This system is easier to install and maintain, as you don’t need additional equipment other than a power outlet to power it up. Portable air conditioners are ideal for making smaller places relaxed and comfortable during brutal summer days.

Advantages of Portable AC

  •         Easily movable
  •         A practical option for spot cooling
  •         Easy to install and maintain
  •         No need for permanent installation

I engaged Diamond Air Design to replace two heat pump systems at my residence. From my initial contact to the completion of the project, I received nothing but the highest level of professional service. Brandon and his installation team did meticulous work, completing the project on time and exactly as promised. Diamond Air is a family-owned business with a sterling reputation. From my experience I understand exactly how they attained and why they deserve that reputation. Highly recommended.

This is one of the 3 companies I had out to my house. I’m very happy Diamond Air was one I contacted. They offered exactly what I needed, did not upsell me and were right on target on what would solve my issue. Preston, my Service Tech, was ready to answer my questions, was super knowledgeable, professional and just a charm beaming with honesty, kindness and all I could pray for in a service tech. You will not be disappointed putting your A/C equipment in their hands! Thank you Diamond Air Team! You have my business.

I had an American Standard Platinum HVAC System installed. Brandon, Stewart, and Preston did the install work. They were scheduled to start at 8:00 am. Stewart arrived at 7:45 am and immediately went to work. Brandon and Preston arrived at 8:00 am with the new HVAC System. I tried to offer them drinks and something to eat but they were more concerned with completing the job. The crew was absolutely fantastic. They completed the install work in about 7 hours. They never stopped working until the job was completely finished. They did an outstanding job installing the new system. The company even filed my warranty paper work for me. I had to do nothing but sit back at let them do all the work, from the install, warranty registration, and setting up the county inspection. They even provided financing for 0% interest rate for 60 months. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Daimond Air Design for HVAC System Replacement!!!
