Air conditioning installation home services guide

The unbearable summer heat can often make you feel mad and irritated. If you have a job that requires you to move around a lot under the sun, you will easily feel drained out after a few minutes. After such a day at work, you will naturally feel like spending a few hours at home under an air conditioner. There was a time when an AC was considered to be a luxury.

In this modern era, it has become a necessity. If it the first time for you to install an air conditioner at home, there are several important factors to keep in mind. It is also important that you compare a few good models and then choose the best as per your needs and budget.  Also, it goes without saying, be sure to hire a professional like Reliable Standard Heating & Air if you are uncomfortable performing the work yourself.

Think About the Right Type of Air Conditioning for Your Home

If you are a first timer at installing a new air conditioner for your home, it is important for you to know that there are various types of air conditioners in the market. You will find window air conditioner, split air conditioner, central air conditioner, and portable air conditioner.

The type you choose will largely depend on the type of house you presently live in with your family. It is also important for you to know that irrespective of your choice, the issue with the installation will remain. In order to decide upon the most convenient type of AC, the type of your residence will play a major role.

Types of Air Conditioners

Here are the 4 major types of air conditioners in the market and their respective installation needs.

  • Portable AC: The popularity of a portable AC is growing at a steady rate. This is mainly due to the ease of installation of a portable air conditioner. Due to the portability of the appliance, you can easily move it from one room to another. It also does not require a professional installer to install such an AC. Some of the new models also come with a heating option so that you can use the appliance for the entire year.
  • Window AC: If you have chilly rooms in your apartment or house, then a window AC will be the best option for you. These types of air conditioners are aptly suited to cool a single room instead of the entire house. The installation requires a professional and is the same as before.
  • Split AC: These are more in demand than other types of air conditioners in the market. It comes in 2 separate parts with the compressor section designed to be kept out of the house. This results in lesser noise from the machine. Installation is done by a professional in this case.
  • Central AC: This type of air conditioning is meant to cool the entire house at the same time unlike the previous types. The installation of a central AC is not that simple, and it also involves a lot of money. However, once the entire house gets cool, you will feel nice and comfortable.
