The Different Types Of Air Conditioners
There are a few different types of air conditioner that you can go for. A single-unit system is not only the most economical way to cool your home, but also the simplest. Single-unit systems can be moved from room to room and all you need to do is fit them into a wall or a window for the hot air to be collected and then pumped into the condenser. This type of system works especially well in spaces up to roughly 300 square feet for smaller units, while the larger ones can cool up to 650 square feet. Split-unit air conditioners work more efficiently than single-units, as they are more powerful and perfect for spaces that get too hot. They are permanently installed onto a wall so you don't need to rely on any windows being open for ventilation, and they are also much quieter. Installation for split-unit systems are not as straight forward as single-units, and they are also more expensive. Portable air conditioners are another option for cooling your house, particularly for homes that prohibit the installation of window units. However, these can be relatively loud, and use up a fair bit of energy, even more so than single-units. Evaporative coolers are also used for air conditioning and are very energy efficient. Their performance largely depends on what climate you live in, as they are most effective during the hottest times of the day or when the humidity is below 50 percent.
