Even in seasons other than summer, you’d think you were in a sauna when standing outside with your eye closed! Your poor air conditioner was chugging along, but it’s not going to make it much longer.
The weather seems to get hotter each passing year in Florida. The summer high temperature jumped a whopping 3.5 degrees from 2019 to 2020!
But did you know that you don’t need to settle for the old-fashioned air conditioning unit anymore? Keep reading to learn why many Floridians keep replacing their old AC units with a split ac model before you melt in the summer heat.
What Is a Split AC Unit and How Does It Work?
A split air conditioning system, or ductless ac system, is a new style of air conditioner that comes in 2 main components. There is an outdoor condenser part that forces refrigerant inside the home through lines leading to the indoor part of the unit. The indoor unit has an air-handler, a blower, and an evaporator coil.
These little units pack a punch though! They’re super energy efficient and improve the quality of the air inside your home.
You can place the indoor unit where you need them the most by installing them onto a wall or even the ceiling! You can have a single room unit that only connects one indoor unit. Or you could opt for a multi-room unit that allows you to run several indoor units using one outdoor condenser.
Also, note that you will need to install a heat pump as well so the unit can reverse the flow of heat to warm your home as well. Make sure to look for a company that offers ductless ac services because they can make sure you’re getting everything you want out of your system.
What Does It Cost?
Any homeowner who has had to replace their air conditioner years ago knows that buying and paying to install a new air conditioner punches you right in the wallet. Recent surveys found that homeowners spend about $2,800 to over $7000 for a traditional air conditioning unit. Installations fees would drive that price tag even higher!
Because a mini split air conditioner comes in a compact package and minimal installation work, you can expect to spend much less. For a ductless air conditioner, you can get away with spending between $3000 and $5000 including installation!
Life Is Much Sweeter When You Keep Your Cool
With this new central air conditioning technology, people can keep their homes cool in a more efficient way and with a much lower price tag. It’s no wonder why so many people are making the switch when it comes time to replace their old systems.
If you notice you’re air conditioner struggling to keep up with the oppressive Florida heat, you should call in a professional to take a look. Don’t wait until your system dies and you need to call an emergency HVAC professional and pay premium fees!`
