This makes you feel that you need an air conditioning unit in your home. But with the many options in the market today, it would be difficult to chose which type of air conditioning unit is best for you. In order to make you have an easier time to decide, I will give you description of some of the different types of unit available in the market today.
The window air conditioning units are made to fit right inside a window and will cool one to two rooms. If you want energy and money savings, then this type of air conditioning would be ideal for you. You can have a fast and easy installation with window air conditioning units. Whatever window style you have, this air conditioning unit will most likely fit in it.
Through the wall air conditioning units are similar to window units. In order to put the air conditioning in, there should be a precut space within a wall. Like window units, these are perfect for cooling down one to two rooms worth of space. Because of their placement, they require a little bit more work for installation purposes than a window unit. You will have to cut a hole in one of your exterior walls, use a sleeve, and insert the wall unit.
PTAC units or package terminal air conditioning units are great for businesses, offices, and hotels. The coverage of these self contained units are larger than what window and wall units can cool. This type of air conditioning unit can also be converted into a heater for the winter months. They are made with owner controls and this means that you can control the settings for each room.
There is also a unit called the ductless split. The design of this unit is a split design but its construction is similar to central air conditioning units. Compared to the central system, this one is easier and affordable to install because they make use of air ducts. In this type, there is one unit that acts as the air handler and sis put inside the house while the other unit is the compressor piece that stays outside the house. Although there is only one compressor for this type of air conditioning, there can be more than one air handler units inside the house. Your best option is to put one air handle in every room. A handler can be used for more than one room for areas that are open and wide.
