Whether you’re building a new home or remodeling an existing one, it’s nice to know you have a variety of heating and cooling options. Most of our customers in Easton, Maryland, choose central air conditioning for many reasons. Just consider the following advantages of central AC systems.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Central air conditioners filter the air circulating through the ducts, boosting its overall quality. As a result, your family is exposed to fewer gases and allergens that are potentially harmful to their health. The system even filters humidity, lowering indoor humidity levels and making your home more comfortable and breathable.

While a central air conditioner filters the air and removes dust, dirt, pet dander, hair, and other debris, you must change the filters regularly. You may need to change the filters more often during peak seasons or if you have pets or a large family.

Fortunately, many modern AC units have built-in indicators that let you know when it’s time to change the filter.

Consistent Temperatures

One of the main reasons people choose central AC systems is because they provide consistent temperatures year round. For example, a window unit has a limited cooling capacity that can cool only the immediate area. In other words, if it’s installed in your living room window, the window unit will only cool that room directly. Its cooling power doesn’t extend to other rooms in the home. Plus, if you have a home with an open concept, a window unit doesn’t have enough capacity to cool a larger space.

By contrast, a central AC unit is designed to cool the entire home simultaneously. Temperatures will be consistent throughout the house, no matter how hot it gets outside. You won’t have to buy multiple, unsightly window units just to enjoy comfortable temperatures in every room.

Lower Noise Levels

Another drawback to window units is that they’re noisy. Central air conditioners boast a quieter operation that’s barely noticeable. You may hear the system kick on, but you won’t hear it throughout the day as it provides cool air to the whole house.

Central air conditioners are quiet because the noisy part of the system, the condenser, is located outside. The exterior unit houses the condenser and fan, both of which make noise when they’re running. Since this unit is located outside, you never have to worry about loud AC noises unless your system is malfunctioning.

User-Friendly Operation

Central air conditioners are easy to operate. Once the system has been installed, you control the temperature via the thermostat or the thermostat remote. How easy the AC unit is to operate depends on the type of thermostat you choose. However, even the most innovative models with multiple program options are designed to be user-friendly. Even better, you can program your air conditioner to turn on just before you get home from work, saving energy during the day but ensuring you return to a cool, comfortable house in the evening.

Unbeatable Convenience

Central AC systems are convenient because they don’t take up valuable space. A window unit, for example, blocks your view and even reduces your home’s curb appeal, which is something no homeowner wants to deal with. While you’ll still have an exterior element to a central AC system, it’s much easier to landscape and to decorate around the condenser unit.

From wooden air conditioner screens to faux greenery, AC equipment covers are available in multiple designs to suit your tastes. You can even undertake a DIY project to beautify your exterior unit, so long as you keep it clear of debris to keep the air flowing freely around the system.

Heating Capabilities

A central air conditioner has all the ductwork your home needs for central heat, so you don’t have to worry about maintaining two different systems. In fact, you can purchase a packaged unit that is both an AC and heating system, which helps you save money.
