Each type of air conditioning system has its own repair requirements. There are many things to consider when choosing an air conditioner for your home. It is important that you understand the unique needs of each system, regardless of what type you select. This information can save you time and money by detecting problems early and maintaining your system.
Types Of Air Conditioning Systems
The most common systems are central air conditioners, portable units, ductless mini splits, split unit ACs, portable units and window-mounted units.
Central Air Conditioners
North Myrtle Beach residents prefer central air conditioners (also known as ducted units) to cool their homes. To cool your home, these systems use an outdoor unit and an interior evaporator coil. The compressor, located in the condenser, works by cycling the refrigerant throughout the system. This cools the air before it enters the home.
Air conditioners with ducts are very efficient and can be used to regulate the temperature in a whole house or office. Installing and operating them can be cheaper than multiple mini-split units and window units.
Split Unit ACs
Split-unit ACs work similarly to central air conditioners, but they have an extra component called a multi-split inverter. Multiple indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor condenser/compressor using this component. These systems are great if you need to cool multiple rooms or do not want to deal with ductwork.
