Installing a central air system in your home is a great option because it can provide many advantages over the competition, particularly window-mounted units. Listed below are just three of the advantages provided by a central air system.
Leaves Your Windows Free From Damage
One of the most inconvenient aspects of utilizing a window-mounted unit is that it will occupy one of your windows for the entire time that it is installed. This can be quite inconvenient because it means that you cannot simply open the window to air out the room or attempt to enjoy a nice breeze on a cool day.
In addition, the window-mounted unit will typically block most of the window and prevent you from easily being able to look outside. On the other hand, a central air system will not interfere with any of your windows as it will be installed outside of your house, usually in your back or side yard.
Only Requires A Single Unit
Another advantage provided by a central air system is that you will only need a single unit to cool your entire home. With a window-mounted unit you will need to buy one for every room in the house that needs air conditioning as they do not really have enough power to cool more than one room at a time.
While the single central air unit is likely to be more expensive than multiple window-mounted units, the central air system is going to be more energy efficient. When comparing a window-mounted unit to a central air system it is clear that the window-mounted unit will use less power, but that is only in a one-on-one comparison.
Is Very Quiet
Finally, a central air system is a good choice if you do not like a lot of noise in your home. As mentioned above, the central air unit is going to be outside of your house, which makes it very unlikely that you will be able to hear it operating from within your house. However, a window-mounted unit will often make a lot of noise since it is in the room with you, which can require you to increase the volume on your television or other electronic devices in order to hear them clearly.
