Cooling Your Offices And Homes With A Central Air Conditioning System

By Lawrence Nelson

As temperatures begin to climb out of doors, it regularly becomes extraordinarily uncomfortable inside for working, relaxing and sleeping. At these times there’s usually an increase in interest in finding tactics to cool down homes, flats and offices. Regularly this is when folk decide that central aircon would be a tasty choice, because it offers a convenient technique to control the indoor environment, vs single room air conditioners that may not be the most productive way to go.

A centralized cooling system does its job by utilizing a “split system,” which is able to condense the air as well as compress it. Additionally, these systems use an evaporator that is connected to the mechanism that handles it, such as a forced-air furnace. The entire unit is then put together as one complete system and installed exteriorly, usually on the roof of a commercial building or in a mechanical unit outside of a house.

As the central air conditioning begins to work, the cool air is sent throughout the building through a series of ducts that allow airflow into different rooms. The temperature in rooms of a house or different parts of a building is achieved by setting the system controls that come with the unit.

Nonetheless there’s also the possibility that some centralized aircon systems don’t come with such controls. In these examples, the controls must be acquired at an extra cost and is going to be installed simultaneously as the entire unit. It’s important to explain this up front with company that’s selling and installing the unit so that there aren’t any surprises in the installation process.

One of the reasons why most homeowners prefer centralized, air conditioning equipment is that these systems are able to keep the noise associated with running the air conditioning outside. Even the newer room air conditioners can be rather noisy, especially when running at night in bedrooms.

Such systems position the equipment that is responsible for the majority of the noise on the outside of the house. This allows the interior of the home to stay nice and quite even though the air conditioning unit might be working hard to keep things cool.

Central air-con is a reasonably complicated system and the hardware is generally installed when a building is under assembly. These heating and air con systems supply the heating, cooling, air filters or air purifiers, and ventilation as wanted to keep the environment of the office or home building cushty and healthy. A centralized system employs supply and return ducts that are placed across the structure to correctly circulate air.

If you are considering installing a new central air conditioner or simply need to replace an existing one, then make sure that the contractors who bid on the job perform a detailed “cooling load calculation” so that the proper system for your home will be installed. It is best not to use a simple “rule of thumb,” which tends to result in oversized equipment.

Simultaneously, they shouldn’t simply replace the existing system with a new unit of the same size. The explanation for this is as the present system could have been the incorrect size to start with, or the home may have been added insulation or even more efficient windows put in since the first system was installed.

All of the air conditioning manufacturers must have the equipment they produce rated for efficiency, according to the law. The rating for a central air conditioning unit is called the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER. Heat pumps carry an HSPF, or Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, rating. The higher the number of the SEER/HSPF rating, the more efficiently the equipment uses electricity.
