You have many options to meet your summer home-cooling needs. You can go old-school and put a block of ice in front of a fan, or you can add a window air conditioner in each room of your home. The thing is, those methods usually leave you with a home that is still uncomfortably warm – or worse, an uncomfortably high energy bill!
If you want the best cooling option for your home, you should be looking at a central air conditioning system. Here’s why.
Central air is one unified system
Unlike other heating and cooling systems, central air enables you to cool and heat your home year-round. Other systems require you to have separate systems or units during the year, depending on what you’re trying to achieve. Central air systems don’t require you to do anything aside from switching your thermostat from heat to cool – and with a smart thermostat, you won’t even have to do that!
Central air is energy efficient
A central air system allows you to program your AC to come on only during certain times of the day, such as only when you’re at home, as well as schedule times for your system to not run, such as when you’re at work or on vacation. This allows you to save money by only running the system when cooling is needed.
Other cooling systems only allow automatic running, so you could end up cooling your home when no one is in it and wasting money as a result. Plus, running only one system is far more energy-efficient than running multiple window units.
Central air improves your indoor air quality
Besides cooling your home more efficiently, a central air conditioning system also controls the humidity levels in your home. Too little or too much humidity can have adverse effects on your health – and your home’s well-being – so, this is of great benefit for any homeowner.
In addition, central air systems work hand-in-hand with comprehensive air purification systems (like Air Scrubber Plus), providing your family with a level of clean indoor air you’ve never enjoyed before.
