AC Unit

When it comes to cooling your home, there are different kinds of AC units and cooling systems available to you. Some may work better than others, depending on your location and what you’re looking to spend, but there are benefits to each unit. For top AC installation services, make sure to contact us at Airco Service Inc.

Central Air

This is one of the most common AC installation services requested. It provides a universal temperature to every room. This way, no matter where you go in the home, it is always the same temperature throughout.

Through the Wall/Window Air Conditioners

These two are very similar in design, although you likely will not need help installing a window unit. The through the wall air conditioner works in a similar way, although it is installed into a way through a chassis sleeve. Through the wall options do not have ventilation systems hanging out the side of the house, so if you’d like to avoid that look, the wall unit may be the best option.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

These units are some of the highest efficiency cooling options available. With a mini-split unit, you are able to provide multiple cooling zones within your home. Now, these are not self contained appliances. The equipment also does not require ducts, such as a central air system. So, if your home doesn’t have a duct system in place, this may be the best way to go. Plus, you are able to control each room individually. This way, if you have a guest room or spare room you rarely are in, you don’t need to pay to cool it throughout the year. Due to this, you can save a good amount of money with the ductless mini-split system.

PTAC Cooling

These are more popular in hotels and assisted living facilities, PTACs have grown in popularity for sun rooms and residential spaces where you don’t want a window unit hanging out of the house.
