service contractor What is a Central Air Conditioning system?
The most common central cooling system is a split system, which includes an outdoor cabinet containing a condenser coil and compressor, and an indoor evaporator coil, usually installed in conjunction with your furnace or air handler. The compressor pumps a chemical called refrigerant through the system. You can use central air conditioning units for Residence, any domestic premises, offices, shops, food processing areas, factories, computer rooms and restaurants. In short they can be used pretty much anywhere and everywhere. The best ones are efficient, operating on minimal electricity to hold utility bills down. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year when properly maintained. Good systems are quiet, long-lasting and low in service needs.
   

What are Ductless Split Air Conditioners? What are mini split air conditioners?

Like the central air conditioner units, mini split air conditioners have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units through a small hole (3 inches usually) that is drilled in the wall of the building. The main advantages of split air conditioners are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Some split air conditioners can have as many as four indoor air handling units (for four zones or rooms) connected to one outdoor unit. The number depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone (which is also affected by how well the building is insulated). Since each of the split air conditioner zones/rooms will have it's own thermostat, you only need to condition that area when someone is present, which saves energy and money. If you are in a office building at a higher floor, you can also install Outside Compressor using our Wall Bracket.

There are two units – one Indoor and the other Outdoor unit – in the Split AC. This is slightly costlier than Window AC, but very energy efficient, advanced and qhisper quiet operation. Copper tubings, electrical cable and the drain pipe need to be connected to the Indoor unit and will need a suitable size hole in the wall. Installation requires more time and additional work, compared to window AC. Excellent aesthetics internally and externally. The Indoor units come in a wide choice of colors and designs for the users to choose from. People over the years have preferred split air conditioners over other types for many reasons explain below.

hvac service What are Packaged Terminal AC?
Packaged terminal air conditioning units, PTACs, are typically selected where individual zones have an outside wall and are conditioned separately with individual occupant control. PTACs are well suited to hotels, motels, nursing homes and apartments. As the name implies, a single package contains all the components of an air-cooled refrigeration and air-handling system in an individual package. Units are designed for through-the-wall installation, with decorative outdoor grilles as an option. Units are also available with various heating options-electric resistance or hydronic. Other variations include the Packaged Terminal Heat Pump (PTHP).
   
What is Ceiling Cassette Air Conditioning?
Ceiling cassette air conditioners are extremely discreet, with only the grill showing in the ceiling. The air conditioner automatically adjusts its performance to meet the changing needs of the space while maintaining the desired temperature. Ceiling cassette systems provide both heating and cooling and are popular in commercial applications such as offices, conference rooms, restaurants, night clubs and bars, as well as new construction condominiums and homes. They are a little more expensive to buy and install as compared to traditional wall mounted split air conditioner systems. They require approximately 25 x 25 inches of room between the trusses and about 14 inches height in the attic.

Made for the area where you need concealed air conditioning. Concealed duct units, as the name suggest, can be installed above the ceiling where they can be hidden. You can one big opening of that indoor unit into two duct air flow system and cool or heat two rooms with one air handler. They are mainly used for adjacent rooms like two bedrooms next to each other or for living room and a bathroom scenerio. They are little more expensive to buy and install compared to wall mounted split systems. The outdoor units are neat, sturdy and can easily be mounted on a roof or terrace or simply placed against an outside wall. Whisper quiet operation sound pressure level, unlike conventional systems providing greater room temperature stability and comfort with limited noise.
   
What is a Portable Air Conditioner?
A portable air conditioner is a self-contained free standing unit that typically sits within the area that is intended to be cooled – providing traditional ‘refrigerant driven’ air conditioned air. All air conditioners have to go through a condensation process. In window air conditioners, because more than 75% of the AC is mounted outside the window, all the condensed water is allowed to drip freely outside. But in case of portable AC, because the AC is inside the room, all the condensed water is stored within an in built tank that needs to be drained. So some portable AC's have to be manually drained, while other Portable AC's use latest technology of Self Evaporation. In this process, AC tries to get rid of most of the water stored in the in built tank by self evaporation, thereby leaving only a small amount that needs to be drained manually which is quiet easy as well. ALL portable AC's have in built water tank which holds water that cannot be self evaporated. Once that water tank is full, the AC shuts itself down and a light blinks on air conditioner's LCD panel indicating it needs to be emptied. Based on this technology AC will never leak even when the water tank is full. There is a small rubber cork at the bottom of the AC, Once you pull that out, the water just drains out and you can empty it in any pan and restart the AC right away. How often would you need to empty the water tank? Answer is no one can really predict that, as it totally depends on the humidity. It could be once a week or once every few hours. It all depends on your usage and the humidity on that particular day and you can always use the option 2 for continous drainage without having to worry about emptying. Continous drainage system drains the water automatically and you never have to empty it manually and it is very easy to setup as well. See option 2 for continous drainage and option 1 for manual drainage below.

It comes in the form of a single box. It is easy to fit on a window or wall frame. This costs lesser than Split AC system, but is slightly noisier than Split AC. Not much scope for aesthetics – internally and externally for the building. They are cheapest last resort solutions mainly. Window air conditioners work on exactly the same principles as a refrigerator or dehumidifier. They have a cooling system that refrigerates the air entering the unit. The moisture in the air condenses on the cold coils and drips into the bottom tray of the air conditioner. The warm air in the room is drawn over the evaporator coil, which collect heat. The heat is conducted into a refrigerant gas. The gas is then circulated to the condensing coils on the back of the unit where it is dissipated to the outside.
