3 Reasons to Switch to Central Air Conditioning

August 15, 2016

When it gets unbearably hot in Mobile, Alabama, you end up running your window ACs at full capacity for months. To effectively tackle Alabama’s heat and humidity, your window units are probably pretty powerful, and you’ve made do with them for years. Switching to a property with central air might seem too expensive when you have an existing window AC solution, but you’re missing out on key comfort components that central air conditioning provides.

Central Air Is Efficient

Window units are rarely as efficient as central air. They consume a lot of electricity and typically gaps around where the unit has been installed mean outdoor air gets inside and makes your unit work harder to cool the house. Central air conditioning systems with high SEER ratings will help you to save big on your electricity bills each year.

Heat Pumps Work Wonders in Alabama

Alabama’s mild winters make it a great area for homeowners to rely on heat pumps for heating and cooling needs. When you use a heat pump for central air conditioning, it removes the heat from the air in your home in the summer and transfers it to the air outside. In the winter, it does just the opposite. Heat pumps take care of both your heating and cooling from one unit.

Correct Sizing Makes a Difference

Chances are, those window units aren’t sized quite right for your home. Even if they’re off by just a little bit, it means you’ll have a harder time achieving a comfortable temperature and humidity level at the same time. When we install a central air conditioning system for you, we size the system, so it fits your home perfectly. The system runs at peak efficiency this way, and you stay extremely comfortable all summer long.
