The Central Air Conditioner Towers Over Window Units

AC-technician-workingIn an area with a very hot climate for a lot of the year—think Arizona, for instance—the idea of making do with window unit air conditioners is not one that most people would entertain. Here in Michigan, however, the heat of summer is neither as extreme or as longlasting. So that means that you can probably get by with just popping in a few window units, right? Wrong. We still have to tell you that a whole-house cooling system is definitely the way to go.

We install and service central air conditioners in Grand Rapids, MI. If you have yet to take advantage of all that these systems have to offer, then we strongly recommend that you start doing so before the real heat of the summer season arrives. Just keep in mind the fact that a central air conditioner installation is not something that you can handle on your own. You’ll need a trained professional to do the job, and our technicians are the ones that you can trust to do it right.

They’re More Convenient

Remember how we said that a central air conditioner requires a professional installaton? You should, because it was just a couple of sentences back. That’s not the point, though. The point is that this is definitely not a bad thing. Why? Because it really beats the alternative. What’s the alternative? Lugging those things around the house twice a year, year after year!

If you do choose to keep using window units to cool your entire home, then you are going to wind up putting them in each summer and having to take them out every fall. Is this a huge deal? No, probably not for most homeowners. Is it something that anyone would look forward to doing? Also no. With a central AC, you don’t have to worry about that type of inconvenience.

They’re More Secure

It is too bad that this is something we even have to think about, the fact of the matter is that window unit air conditioners leave your home less secure than a central air conditioner would. When you have a window unit in place, your windows are obviously going to be open throughout the season. That means that someone could take advantage of that vulnerability to enter your home uninvited.

Is this the primary reason why you should opt for a central air conditioner? Of course not. Is it something that you should consider along with the other benefits that central cooling has to offer? Absolutely. Anytime you can pair improved comfort with improved security and peace of mind, you’re on to something.

They’re More Efficient

Okay, so this is a major point of consideration. When you cool your home with a central air conditioning system, you are not just cooling your home more effectively. You are doing so more reliably. A properly sized central air conditioner is, without a doubt, going to do more efficient job of cooling your home than window units possibly could.
