The Many Benefits of Central Air Conditioning

Central air conditioning has become standard in American homes. Approximately 75% of homes in the US have central air, meaning a forced air system that consists of ducts to disburse the cooled air throughout the home. This modern convenience is something we often take for granted, that is, until the system breaks down suddenly and we find ourselves in need of Eden AC repair. Consider the many benefits of central air conditioning.


Home Comfort

The most obvious benefit of central air conditioning is comfort. Your home will feel cool and comfortable on even the hottest of days when you have central air. Advancements in technology have made air conditioners highly effective at cooling homes even when the temperature outside is scorching. Relax and sleep better during the late spring, summer, and early fall months in your cool, refreshing home.


Energy Efficiency

Central air conditioners are some of the most energy-efficient home cooling systems available. Technological advancements have improved efficiency, reducing the amount of electricity required to run air conditioners by at least half when compared with older systems. Central air uses significantly less energy than multiple window units and other home cooling systems.


Humidity Control

You’ve heard people say that it’s not as much the heat as the humidity that feels so uncomfortable. Central air conditioning controls the humidity in your home, which not only helps it feel more comfortable, but it also removes harmful moisture from the air inside your home that could lead to mold and mildew growth. Ask anyone who has mold removed from a home and they’ll tell you, the process is lengthy and costly.


Improved Air Quality

Even with basic disposable air filters, your central air conditioning system will improve the air quality in your home. Filters remove dust, dirt, pollen, and other particles from the air that can cause allergies and other respiratory illnesses. High efficiency filters can remove even smaller particles from the air. You can even take air quality one step further and add an air purification system to your central air which is capable of killing airborne pathogens and producing new, clean air.


Low Maintenance

A central air conditioning system is very low maintenance. All that is recommended is yearly tune-ups and replacement of disposable filters about every 3 months. If your home is newly built or has had any significant renovations, it is recommended that you change your filters monthly for the first 6 months following construction.


What Are the Best Air Conditioning Units?

If you’re considering adding or upgrading to central air conditioning, there are many high-quality systems on the market. Consider top brands like Lennox, York, Goodman, ThermoPride, and Armstrong Air to name a few. The best air conditioning units have a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of at least 16, with top systems at a rating of 20-22.
