Melbourne, FL Air Conditioning Installation Options

Let’s look briefly at 3 of your air conditioning options. Make sure that you use a professional air conditioning contractor to help you find the right sized AC unit that matches your home’s needs.

  1. Central. By far the most popular model, central air conditioning is typically known as a split system. This system is called “split” because it has an outdoor condensing unit and an indoor heat pump which houses the evaporator and air handler. The air handler uses a fan to push the cool air throughout the ductwork of your home. If you already have a furnace, a central AC system may be the most cost-effective installation because it can be connected to the existing ductwork. Check with one of our Melbourne, FL air conditioning installation experts.
  2. Ductless. Ductless mini split systems are relatively new. As you can tell from its name, it doesn’t use extensive ductwork throughout the home to circulate air. If you don’t have ducts in your home, or don’t have enough room for them, a ductless system may be a good option. Ductless mini split systems use wall-mounted, individual room units which allow homeowners to customize the cooling in various parts of their home. Each unit can be assigned its own thermostat which might help reduce energy consumption by shutting off the cooling in parts of the house that you don’t need.
  3. Packaged. Packaged air conditioning systems are similar to a central split air conditioning systems, but it combines all of the units in one. Depending on your home and its location, this can be advantageous. You can put the whole unit on the roof, or if you live in a mobile home, it can sit outside.

Whatever air conditioning system you choose, remember that installation is one of the most important factors in how effective your AC is. Call Next Generation Air & Heat for professional air conditioning installation in Melbourne, FL.
