When you think of summer, what comes to mind first? For some, it might be an upcoming family vacation or taking a dip in the local pool — but what about your cooling options for your home? Sure, you might be satisfied with using a standard, window-based air conditioner, but have you considered making the switch to a central unit?
If you’re still on the fence about whether or not you should go for that upgrade, here are some fantastic benefits to consider!
Benefits of a Central Air Conditioner
Can Help Reduce Humidity
Think about it: When that warm, hazy summer weather arrives in Tennessee, the humidity in your home will likely increase. And when that happens, you could run into some trouble (i.e., mold and poor indoor air quality). However, unlike a window unit, a central air conditioner can effortlessly stabilize the air in every room, keeping a consistent, even temperature throughout your entire home. This will help prevent humidity from increasing and give you peace of mind that you won’t run into mold-related troubles.
Will Produce Less Noise and Run More Efficiently
If you’ve had a window unit air conditioner in your home, you know that not only is the unit quite vocal (typically, when the compressor kicks on.), but it can also require a lot of energy to operate — especially if more than one unit is in use. And when this happens, your energy bills may skyrocket — something every homeowner wants to avoid. However, with a central air conditioner, these two characteristics will be a thing of the past.
For starters, the compressor is located outside of your home. And, thanks to modern technology, it will run fairly quietly if you maintain it well. Now, when it comes to energy usage, a central air conditioner is a much more practical choice (especially in larger homes) since it will only use one power source, not several; which can significantly help reduce that much higher running cost you’d face with multiple window units in use.
Additionally, with routine maintenance and tune-up appointments, these will help your unit run at peak performance and even more efficiently — a dream come true for every homeowner!
