As summer progresses and the weather gets hotter, most people will do anything to keep their homes cool. Air conditioners are an essential way to do this. Some people prefer small window A/C units while others like a central air conditioning system. At Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend central A/C units over window systems. In this blog, we will explain why a central A/C unit over a window system is the right choice for you.
DISADVANTAGE TO WINDOW UNITS: WINDOW TROUBLES
A window unit, of course, needs a window, but this can have its own downsides. These units block the window, meaning it can block the rooms one source of natural light. Plus, not all windows can support window A/C systems either. Windows come in different shapes and sizes and not all of them can fit or hold an A/C unit.
DISADVANTAGE TO WINDOW UNITS: INSTALLATION
Installing a window unit can be finicky. If there is nothing outside of the window to support it, then this can present a major risk. It takes just a bit of instability to send the air conditioner toppling out of the window. It can also be a hassle to transport the A/C unit to different locations. The system’s mobility is necessary, but it is not so easy to do so.
DISADVANTAGE TO WINDOW UNITS: SECURITY RISK
No matter where the A/C system is located, it still presents a security risk for your home. The main appeal of these units is that they can be removed when needed. However, this means that anyone can remove it from the window, including people you might not want inside your home. Even if the window is up high, it still poses as an easier entryway into a home.
ADVANTAGES TO CENTRAL UNITS
A central unit is a larger investment than a window unit, but we believe it to be well worth it. A central A/C unit provides cooling to all parts of your home, which is advantageous for larger living spaces. Its network of ducts allows for it to smoothly function. The system is also made to turn off and on automatically as your home heats and cools. There is no need to worry about wasting energy or accidentally leaving your unit on too long.
The central unit is durable and made to last as it stays outside in the elements. It also provides better air quality to your home, which is something we take very seriously at Bob’s Heating. Better air quality means an improved quality of living, and this is something we always strive to achieve.
