Deciding whether or not to install air conditioning in your home is a big decision. There are so many elements that go into it. Here is a quick look at one of the first questions you should ask yourself: do I want central air conditioning, or a window unit? Both types have their pros and cons that you can read about below.
Central Air Conditioning:
Central Air Conditioning systems can cool a whole home and, if you already have a forced air furnace, these can usually be hooked up to the existing duct system. They are controlled by a thermostat.
Cons- There is only one major con with Central Air Conditioning and that is that it is typically more expensive than window units.
As their name suggests, window units are air conditioning devices installed right in your window that can only cool 1-2 rooms in a home. They are generally temporary and often removed from the window each fall.
Flame does not offer window units, however, if you are interested in learning more about the pros and cons of the different types of cooling, please feel free to contact Flame!
