Air Conditioning Guide: Getting to Know Your Air Conditioning Options

Whether you’re installing an air conditioning system in your new Wellington, FL home, or replacing your existing system, it’s important to know what your options are so that you can make an informed decision. There is a lot of misinformation on the web, so it’s important to get in touch with a professional to get accurate information about your options. Only a certified and experienced air conditioning contractor will be able to advise you on what best works for your home and your budget. At Astro Air Inc., we love to talk to customers about their air conditioning options, and our highly-trained technicians are passionate about providing quality air conditioning installation service.

Let’s look at some of your air conditioning options:

  • Central AC. This is a classic split system, which means there is an outdoor and indoor unit. This is the most common type of air conditioning system, and is also known as central AC. It uses an extensive system of ductwork to send cool, conditioned air throughout your home. When an air conditioning unit with a high SEER rating is used, it can be both energy-efficient and cost-effective.
  • Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner. Like a conventional central air split system, there is an outdoor unit that houses the compressor, and an indoor unit that circulates the cool air. But unlike a conventional system, there is no ductwork. Ductless mini splits are space-savers, economical, and highly efficient. They also offer greater energy savings in the long-term if maintained well. The sleek indoor air handlers can be located in spaces throughout your home so that you can customize individual zone temperatures. This can also help you to avoid cooling your whole house when all you need is the downstairs, or upstairs.

You may also want to keep in mind that SEER ratings are only as good as the integrity of the entire system (including insulation), and the quality of the installation. That’s why customers in the Wellington, FL area rely upon the air conditioning experts at Astro Air Inc. We carry quality central air conditioners from Carrier, Trane, and Amana, and ductless mini splits from LG, Samsung, Mitsubishi, Sanyo, and QuietCool.
