A Quick Overview of Residential Air Conditioning

California enjoys warm weather most of the year, but temperatures heighten even more during the summer. The simplest way to cool your home during this season is to use your air conditioning system. If your AC is old and failing, however, then now is the perfect time for an upgrade. You can get started by checking this quick guide on residential AC systems by Dependable Heating & Air Conditioning, the area’s trusted furnace maintenance expert.

Air conditioners generally come in three types. These include central, window/room and ductless split systems. Central air conditioners, the most popular option, are usually divided into two units–an external one housing the condenser and compressor and an internal unit that contains the evaporator. This option cools your home by distributing cold air through a system of ducts and registers. Central AC systems are also available in packaged units, which means all of the system is located in one place.

  1. A window or room AC system, on the other hand, is a compact and readily available option that doesn’t require ductwork and is perfect for smaller spaces. Ductless split systems, like a central AC, come with an internal and external unit, but can run without any ductwork. The type you choose will depend on your specific needs. You can also consult Dependable Heating & Air Conditioning, the area’s premier home heating replacement contractor, who’ll be more than happy to help you explore your options.

Don’t overlook air filters in your AC system. Air filters help your air conditioning system run properly with reduced wear and tear, but they also work to prevent larger pieces of dust and other particles from being circulated throughout your house. By lowering the number of allergens and pollutants in your indoor air, they help ensure a healthier, safer home. To augment your air filters, you can also add an air purifier, which will help handle other pollutants like pet dander, pollen, mold and gases.
