Types Of A/C Units

Air conditioners are one of the most common electrical appliances. An A/C unit plays a primary role in cooling down your home. Each type of air conditioner is designed for a certain space and fulfills a unique need. When choosing an air conditioner, you want to consider budget, energy consumption, space requirements and cooling power.

Central Air Conditioner

Central air conditioners are perfect for larger homes. The main advantages of a central air conditioner is that it can cool multiple rooms at once, as long as each of those rooms are connected to the air ducts. This will create a more regulated and comfortable environment throughout your home.

Ductless Mini-Split

A ductless mini-split unit is a great option for those that seek direct control of cooling down a room. Ductless mini-split systems are usually more energy efficient as well. People are drawn to this type of air conditioning system because it can be installed anywhere without the need for ductwork.

Window Air Conditioner

Window air conditioners are a single unit that blows cool air into a room while ejecting heat through the outside part of the system. If you don’t want to spend a ton of money on an AC unit, this is a great option for you. They’re easier to maintain and have lower upfront costs.

Portable Air Conditioner

Portable air conditioners work similarly to window air conditioners. The main difference is that portable air conditioners can be moved between rooms depending on which space you want to cool. The main benefit of a portable air conditioner is that there’s no permanent installation involved and the unit can be moved around.

Floor-Mounted Air Conditioner

Floor-mounted air conditioning units are perfect for the elderly or for people who have respiratory problems. Due to the air conditioning unit being installed close to the ground, users can easily check the air filters and ensure that they have the best air quality possible.

Hybrid Air Conditioner

Hybrid air conditioners contain a system that utilizes a gas furnace and an electric air-source heat pump. During the summer, the system pulls hot air from inside your house and expels it outside. During the winter, the system works in reverse. This option is great for those who want to lower their carbon footprint and minimize the cost of utility bills.

Residential Services

It’s important to have a reliable heating and cooling system that you and your family can depend on. Having a properly functioning air conditioning unit will allow you to enjoy lower utility bills, a comfortable home even during sweltering summers and an A/C unit that will work efficiently as long as possible.

A/C Installation FAQ

On average, a well-maintained air conditioner usually lasts for about 15 years. If you’ve had your air conditioning system for about this long, then it’s a good time to start considering a replacement.

SEER, or seasonal energy efficiency rating, is a way of measuring how efficient your air conditioning unit is. It’s calculated by taking the cooling output of your system, and dividing it by the energy used. The higher the number, the more efficient your system. Air conditioners with a higher SEER typically cost more upfront, but their monthly cost is more affordable.

Technically, yes. If you’re willing to spend the money and invest in ductwork, then central air conditioning can definitely become a part of your home. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the Polar Bear Mechanical team can assess your space and provide you with alternative ductless cooling options.

We highly recommend hiring professionals to handle your A/C repairs and installations. Air conditioning units are complex, and require proper knowledge to be handled correctly. An incorrectly installed unit may result in poor efficiency, lack of durability and decrease in length of use.

After the Polar Bear Mechanical team installs your new air conditioning unit, you’ll notice that your home is able to easily reach your desired temperatures. With a new, efficient system, you’ll also most likely notice lower energy bills because your air conditioning unit will no longer have to work so hard to cool your space.

Our licensed HVAC specialists will take into consideration multiple factors such as the size of your space, average climate and the amount of windows you have to figure out the best air conditioning system that will efficiently meet your needs.
