That’s only because very few homeowners have air conditioners in mind when frigid winter climes draw close. Consequently, it is much easier to find bargains for both air conditioner and installation prices.
Besides that, you are far less likely to face long delays during hot days due to professional installers’ work schedule conflicts. Thus, installation can be arranged at your convenience instead of the contractor’s.
You should examine your current insulation as part of making preparations to have an HVAC system installed or upgraded. Most laypeople do not realize that insulation is designed to help keep interior areas cool as well as warm. But insulation does indeed serve a dual purpose by keeping in cold air during the summer, as well as trapping warm air during the winter.
Adequate insulation keeps a lid on cooling bills by allowing your AC to work less often all year long. This beneficial effect is thanks to better ability to entrap cool air during hot scorchers of long summer months.
That’s also when humidity tends to hover about at its highest levels of the entire year to deliver a double blow with stifling heat that causes stickiness and excessive perspiration.
After getting your house in proper order to have an air conditioning system installed or upgraded, the next step is deciding which design will best suit your needs. Your two basic options are a stationery central A/C unit to cool the entire house or a portable air conditioner that you may move around freely.
The latter type of device works well in homes with many rooms that are rarely occupied. Rather than having to pay for power wasted to cool places where no one is present, you may limit cooling to most often used living spaces. If habitation habits should ever change in the future, merely wheel your portable air cooler to a different duty station at will.
By contrast, if your entire home is always full, central air conditioning is most likely the best bet. Besides having more power to maintain simultaneous comfort throughout the whole house, central HVAC operation is hassle-free, as there is nothing to move around. Whatever your final choice, be absolutely certain that all ducks are lined up with enough bucks on hand to buy a quality system and competent professional installation.
Both advantages are essential to lay a solid foundation for reliable air conditioning with maximum energy efficiency over the longest life expectancy. When added all together, those separate factors yield a single end result: Less money spent for longer enjoyment of more comfortable surroundings. You simply can’t beat that winning combination with a stick or concrete post any day of the week!
