When people buy a house for the first time, they may wonder whether they should have central air installed if the building does not currently have this feature. The cost of the equipment and installation is obviously higher than would be the case when buying a window air conditioner or two, but the comfort throughout the entire house is desirable. Fortunately, after installation is complete, annual Residential HVAC Maintenance in Lewis Center OH is an affordable service and will keep the equipment running without problems for many years to come.
A window air conditioner keeps at least one room cool, and that cool air generally extends out for many additional square feet as long as the room is not blocked off. An air conditioner in a living room window can even help keep bedrooms on the same story relatively comfortable, but not everybody wants to keep their bedroom door opened while sleeping. Another problem occurs for a multi-story home that needs multiple window air conditioners to keep all areas of the house somewhat comfortable. That can be inefficient and put unwanted demands on the home’s electrical system. There’s also a frustration aspect when window air conditioners are running a great deal of the time and driving up the electric bill, but failing to cool off the home as the residents would like.
Instead, a central air system is easily controlled with a thermostat so the optimum temperature can be reached and kept there. The air blows through the ducts, just as warm air from the furnace does. It reaches all the rooms that have ducts going to registers directing air outward; the other registers in the house are intake vents that bring air back to the HVAC equipment.
The same professional technicians who complete central air installation can also provide annual Residential HVAC Maintenance in Lewis Center OH for the furnace and air conditioning system at the same time. In Ohio’s climate, this is generally done in fall, since furnaces are used more extensively than air conditioners are. Homeowners can choose a company such as Comfort Xpress for these types of projects. Contact us to learn more.
