Air conditioning systems come in many shapes and sizes. First, you must purchase an AC unit. Before you do that, it is important to know what options you have. There are so many options available that it is easy to become overwhelmed. Let’s take a look at the various types.

  • Window AC units
  • Portable AC units
  • Split Type AC units
  • Central air conditioning units

Some AC systems are better suited for certain environments. Make sure to research the type of AC that is best suited for your environment before you install it.

How AC units work

AC units remove heat from a room and send it outside. The system includes refrigerant and condensers as well as compressors, evaporator coils and an expansion valve. All AC units have these components, although they may differ in size or design.

How to maintain AC units for window types

HVAC systems can be used to heat and cool the whole house. HVAC systems are similar in their operation, but maintenance can be more challenging. Window AC units are much easier to maintain. You only need to clean the filters regularly and wash the dirt off the evaporator coils and condensers.

Wall mounted AC units can have similar problems, especially older models. If the compressor isn’t turning on, the unit isn’t cooling or it won’t turn on, call an air conditioning contractor to inspect the unit and perform air conditioning repair Myrtle Beach.

Proper maintenance will keep your home cool

Filters are used in air conditioning units to filter the air and catch dust. Filters that get too dirty can cause the AC unit to fail to take in enough air and maintain the desired temperature. Keep your home cool by changing the filter every two weeks. You may need to clean the coils and condensers every two weeks depending on where you live. Coils that are clean have better heating and cooling capabilities.
