The Pros and Cons of Central AC

Central air conditioning Brisbane is a system that distributes cooled indoor air throughout a home through a network of supply and returns ducts. A central air conditioner, also known as “ductless cooling”, has both an indoor and outdoor unit. The internal unit is mounted near the ceiling in a central location, usually over a living area such as the family room or great room. The external unit sits outside your house on a concrete pad or another type of base. Ductwork connects the two to distribute cooled air throughout the house.

 

The Pros and Cons of Central AC

 

While it’s true that there are many benefits to having central ac installed in your home, there are some disadvantages as well:

 

Pros:

 

  1. It’s more efficient than window units and portable ACs. A central air conditioner provides filtered, cooled air in both hot and cold seasons. The indoor unit is connected to the outside system, so it runs more efficiently and doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain a consistent temperature inside your house. With a single thermostat controlling all the equipment, you only need to set it once for the whole house, rather than having individual controls for each room or area of your home.

  2. Central AC keeps your whole house cool if one part of it gets too warm from sunlight shining through windows or lamps being left on in one room.
  3. Unlike portable ac units that blow heated or cooled air in one direction, central ac distributes cool air evenly throughout the entire house. Even if the temperature of your home varies from room to room due to heat rising or cold air settling in certain areas, central ac gives you a consistent temperature throughout the house.

  4. Central AC is often more aesthetically pleasing than window units and portable ACs. It has an indoor unit that can be hidden away, or you can install it on an outside wall where it’s less noticeable, instead of having a big metal box block your view out of your window.

 

Cons:

 

  1. Central AC costs more to install than other types of air conditioning systems because ductwork must be installed for it to function correctly. This will add some expense to the initial installation, but it should eventually pay for itself in energy savings.

 

  1. Central AC can be more expensive to maintain than other types of ac systems because there are less equipment and parts that need to be replaced. The only parts that will likely need replacing over time are the filters and evaporator coils, which you’ll typically have to pay someone else to do.

 

  1. A central air conditioner doesn’t cool as quickly as portable or window units so you may not feel comfortable enough with it on very warm days when you first turn it on. Some homeowners use a portable unit during the day and switch back to central AC at night when they sleep. However, since both systems run through the same ductwork network, using a portable unit during the day can cause central AC to run less efficiently at night, as it struggles to keep up with the demand for cooled air.

 

Takeaway

 

While there are some cons to having a central AC unit, in this article, we view it as beneficial because of the many pros that come with using an AC system. If you choose to use an AC unit in your home, then be sure that you know how to properly care for and maintain your systems so that your home isn’t uncomfortable and expensive.
