There are many different types of air conditioning units on the market for you to choose from, whether for commercial use, or residential use. Residential units will tend to be highly efficient, hardly noticed, quiet, and very affordable. For commercial purposes, there are many different types of systems that you can utilize, which will reflect the type of unit you will ultimately buy.
Many people replace their old AC units because the new systems and units available save a lot of money on electric bills and usage, and these new units tend to cool a house faster and more precisely.
Before you take the plunge of getting a new unit for your home or office, it is smart to call your local professionals to take a look at it to see if the issue with your current equipment is a case of maintenance or repair. Many people let these type of machines go untouched for too long, which will cause it to be less effective and efficient.
A professional will come in and evaluate the machine, and tell you the cost of maintenance and repair. If the unit is not worth saving, this would be the time that options are offered for replacement.
The two different types of major systems that might be offered to you as an option are traditional air conditioning units, or the possibility of a heat pump system. The traditional type will be a highly efficient unit that can work with your existing duct work to cool your home properly without wasting endless amounts of electricity. A heat pump system works by more so moving air instead of creating the cold air, and it usually works in hand with a traditional system in place. It tends to take the stress of your major system that is in place.
Commercial units depend on the type of application, but usually have many differences to smaller home units. The size of a commercial air conditioner is large, and can tend to be loud, which is why the locations of these types of units are far from where customers or workers would be. Commercial units have many special features in them such as keeping mold out of the area, keeping dust out of the air, and other preventative measures to keep the air you and your customers or employees breathe.
No matter what your application is, there is the right unit for your setup. It can be new construction, or for replacement of an older unit, your professional HVAC techs can help you with every step of buying a new air conditioning unit.
