In an area where summers can get quite hot, having central air conditioning can make all the difference. When compared to other types of air conditioning systems, such as individual room conditioners, the benefits of central air are apparent.
Having this type of system in the home benefits homeowners in these five ways:
Central air cools the whole home at the same temperature with just one push of a button. It makes the house more comfortable than adjusting an air conditioner in each room. Although single room ACs have the advantage of cooling one room that is being used while the others aren’t, walking from that room into a blast of hot air can be quite a shock.
Most central air conditioners run fairly quietly and don’t disturb everyday life. Other types of units are much louder, making a constant mechanical buzz, which could be distracting or annoying to some people.
Single room air conditioners protrude from the window, blocking views and distracting from the design of the room. They are also noticeable from the outside of the home. Central air systems have a single unit outside, a thermostat, and discreet vents that don’t look out of place.
A single thermostat makes controlling the temperature of the house much easier, especially one that is programmable. This helps conserve energy when nobody is home. Individual units have to be adjusted by hand and aren’t able to be set to keep the room at a more constant temperature.
5. Energy Usage
Having several units to cool down the home means increased energy consumption and high bills during the summer. Central air cools the whole house on one system, using less energy in the long run.
