Ductless Mini–Split Air Conditioners
If you need to cool multiple rooms, you may want to consider a split model air conditioner. The installation of these types of air conditioners generally involves the placement of the compressor, expansion valve and condenser in a single unit outside and another unit inside with the cooling fan and coil. These types of air conditioners are highly effective for cooling more than one room or large spaces within your house.
Mini–Split air conditioning units generally cost slightly more for installation, but do not require ductwork and only require cleaning of the units each year for maintenance. The exact cost of installation and energy use will depend on the number of cooling tons (12,000 BTU) you use to cool your home.
When you are installing a new air conditioning system, bigger is not always better. An AC system that is too large will turn on and off frequently, leading to extra wear and tear on the components. It will also not be able to properly dehumidify the air. Your AC contractor can do a load calculation prior to installation to determine what size air conditioning system will meet your home’s needs.

Packaged Air Conditioners
However, if you want something that will efficiently cool your entire house at once a packaged air conditioner may be what you are after. These units are the most common way to cool an entire moderate sized house and involve an outdoor compressor package as well as a system of ducts through which cooled air can be delivered to various locations throughout your home.
Central Air Conditioning Systems
For even larger jobs, you may have to opt for a full–fledged central air conditioning system. These are generally used for larger buildings and homes. They are very powerful and have the ability to maintain a consistent temperature throughout a multi–floor building or large open space like a movie theater. Like packaged air conditioners, these also use an outdoor unit attached to a system of ducts, the main difference being the power and size of the outdoor compressor unit.
Picking the Right AC System
If you want to get the most out of your air conditioning unit, it is important to make sure the one you choose is the right size for the job. An air conditioning system that is more powerful than necessary will probably end up switching off and on a lot, thereby putting extra strain on all of its component parts.
On the other hand, a unit or system that is not powerful enough will be working too hard to get the job done. This also takes a toll on the system and can shorten its life considerably, not to mention causing a dramatic increase in your energy bills.
Here at Bob’s, we are committed to helping you find the right air conditioning system for your particular situation. And our expert technicians have all the skills and equipment necessary to install the unit you choose correctly. Before you know it, you will be enjoying the comfort of a properly climate–controlled house. If this sounds appealing, give us a call today. We would love to hear what we can do for you today.
