What to look for in an Air Conditioning Unit
Air conditioning is one of those things that's easy to take for granted if you have it, and-on a hot, humid summer afternoon-easy to know if you don't!
In warm climates, central air conditioners have become more the norm than the exception. In addition to cooling, they dehumidify and filter air, making it more comfortable and cleaner.
For those who aren't familiar with the terms, a central air conditioner works from a central location to distribute conditioned air throughout a house or office.
Unlike a small, window or wall-mounted room air conditioner, designed to cool a small area, a central air conditioner borrows a central air handling unit such as a forced air furnace or heat pump and ductwork for whole-house delivery.
The related heat pump is essentially a central air conditioner that can be reversed in winter to heat a house.
