Is your home still using a window air conditioner? If so, you might be missing out on a better cooling experience. Today, most new homes are coming with central air conditioning installed and more and more homeowners of older houses are choosing to get central air installed as well. Here are three reasons why you might want to reach out to a local air conditioning company to inquire about central air.
No More Noise
I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you, could you walk away from the air conditioner and say that again? If your family often has a problem speaking over the air conditioner as it loudly does its job in the living room, central air can help you solve this problem. While central air technically makes a little bit of noise as air moves through the vents, most of the sound will be coming from a unit that is installed outside your home. Even this unit is likely to make far less noise than the amount of sound that comes out of most window air conditioning units. With no more loud AC, you'll be able to enjoy televison or the radio without all of that distracting noise in the background.
An Even Temperature
If your home only has one window air conditioner installed, you might become slightly annoyed every time you walk into a different room besides the one the A/C is installed in because you'll have to deal with warmer temperatures in every other area of the house. When you install central air, your entire house is cooled evenly so you can feel great no matter where you go. If you are worried about energy costs, just shut the vents in rooms that you don't use.
It Could Save You Money
Yes, installling central air will obviously cost money, but you might actually come out financially ahead in the long run. That's because central air can run more efficiently than most window units and you can install programmable thermostats throughout the house in order to manage the temperature throughout the day. If there are specific rooms that you only use at night, you can use a programmable thermostat for that room to ensure it is cool when you need it but otherwise let the temperature rise when you know you will not be here.
Central air is quieter and possibly more efficient than a window unit. It will also cool your entire house evenly if you want it to. For more information, reach out to an air conditioning company today.
