Install Air Conditioning: System Basics

If you’re looking to install air conditioning in your home or commercial building, familiarize yourself with the three main types of air conditioning systems found in our area:

Split System Central Air Conditioner (Ducted A/C)

This is what people most commonly think of when they talk about wanting air conditioning. Split central air allows you to place the noisy portion or your cooling unit outside, where it will be less noticeable. Split central air requires that your house have ducting to the various rooms in your home (usually the same ducting you use for your central heat). Central air allows you to cool all parts of a house evenly and quietly.

Single-Package Central Air

Install Air Conditioning on your rooftop

Single-package central air conditioners are most commonly used in industrial applications. All of the components are mounted into one “package,” which is typically mounted on the roof of a building, and occasionally on a wall.

Ductless Air Conditioner

Install Air Conditioning that is ductless

For homes that do not have ducting already in place, there have been real advancements in ductless air conditioning units. Though you are not typically able to cool an entire home with this system, if you have a very open floor plan you can keep the noisy parts of the process outside while you cool the area that surrounds the ductless A/C unit.
