When those outside temperatures begin to soar, you want a reliable air conditioning system to deliver relief from heat and humidity. Today’s air conditioning systems are designed to provide outstanding comfort while keeping fuel costs to a minimum. Homeowners, in fact, can save as much as 40 percent on their cooling costs annually by replacing an old 10 SEER model with a new, more energy-efficient 16 SEER system.
Air Conditioning Options
Air conditioners rely on the refrigeration cycle to control indoor temperatures and humidity. This cycle involves the transformation of refrigerant through several processes to ensure heat energy is extracted from a building’s interior and deposited outdoors. The cooler air is then sent back into the indoor space thanks to a forced air fan.
Today’s air conditioners use a refrigerant that is environmentally friendly to deliver efficient cooling. It’s important for homeowners to understand that refrigerant used in older AC models is being phased out, which has caused a dramatic increase in its price.
There are three main configurations for central air conditioners:
- Split Air Conditioners: These systems have a separate condensing unit and air handler. The condenser is generally placed outside while the air handler is installed in a furnace closet or garage. Split systems are considered the best in overall efficiency.
- Heat Pumps: Delivering both cooling and heating, this option often appeals to those in areas where natural gas is unavailable or milder winters make this a solid year-round indoor comfort solution. Heat pumps are available as either split systems or package units.
- Package Units: When space is a concern, these units offer both condenser and air handler storage in a single cabinet. They are meant for rooftop installation and are available in straight gas-electric, AC or heat pump varieties. Whether you’re just looking for a newer, greener HVAC system or you’re building a home from the ground up, we also offer alternative energy options. Geothermal cooling and heating, for example, is one of the most energy- and cost-efficient options available. At Melton, we understand your top priority is keeping your family comfortable and safe. Our greener options enable you to do so while doing some good for the environment, too.
Successful AC installation starts with proper system design. Our NATE-certified technicians begin installation by performing a complete set of load calculations using ACCA Manual J to properly size every heating and air conditioning system we install.
Before we get started with installation, we’ll also formulate a construction schedule that’s meant to minimize disruption to your lifestyle.
