If you live in Longwood, Florida, or the greater Seminole County area, you know how important it is to have an HVAC system in top working order. There can be a lot of questions and uncertainty about which type of system is right for your needs and whether or not your system needs maintenance or repair, but United States Heating & Air is here to help.
Which Cooling System Is Right For Me?
At United States Heating & Air, we specialize in the installment, maintenance, and repair of three different kinds of cooling systems for your home. If you’re looking to install a new system or replace an old one, we are happy to consult on which system may be the right fit for your home.
Central Air Conditioning
When your thermostat senses that the internal temperature of your home has exceeded the desired setting, it kicks the central air system in gear. This system uses a fan to pull the warm air from inside your home into the system’s return ducts. The air then passes through a filter to eliminate dust and airborne pollutants, and then passes over a cold evaporator coil, cooling the hot air. Then the now cold air is passed through the blower fan and into your home to keep it cool.
Heat pumps can both heat and cool your air, so this is great for someone living in an area that needs both heating and cooling. This system works by absorbing the heat inside your home and pushing it outside of your house, helping to cool things down. In cold temperatures, the heat pump removes heat from the outside air and sends it inside your home.
Mini-Split Heat Pump
With a mini-split heat pump, you can control the temperature of each separate room, rather than setting the temperature for the whole house.
Why You Should Install an A/C System
Besides keeping you cool, A/C systems can provide a lot of benefits, including the following.
Reduced Moisture in Your Home
If you live in a humid area like Florida, you know how it can feel to deal with humidity outside and inside your home. Air conditioners will keep you cool and reduce moisture levels in your home.
More Energy Efficient
Air conditioners are only improving as the years go by, and installing a new air conditioner can lead to greater energy efficiency and lower bills.
Air conditioners are also much quieter than other methods of cooling your home, allowing you to enjoy cooler temperatures without distracting noises in the background.
