If you live in an older home, it’s pretty likely that you do not have access to a high-efficiency HVAC system – just because this kind of system was not around when your home was built. However, in the hot, humid Minnesota summers, a working AC unit is almost a necessity to cool down. But, how do you cool down your home in the most efficient, cost-effective way? Your local HVAC company may be able to help. Here are some options when you’re thinking about installing efficient AC in an older house: AC repairs in Fridley MN
Consider Central AC
Central AC is the most common kind of cooling system that people choose to have installed. It’s an easy way to control the temperature in your house, and it is pretty easy to maintain as well. However, a central AC system requires a lot of ductwork to reach all the way around your home, and many older homes simply do not have enough space for this. Central AC can also be expensive because of its efficiency and the kind of labor needed to install a large amount of ductwork. To find out how easy it would be to install central AC in your home, contact your local HVAC company in Fridley MN.
Split systems are a good way to cool down each room of your house without worrying about bulky ductwork. These are individual units that can be placed in any room around your house. Cooling units typically cool down 1-2 rooms, and they only require a power line that connects them to an air conditioner compressor and fan which makes them less bulky and easier to install. The downside to this kind of system is that since central AC isn’t cooling down your entire house evenly, you may have to make a choice about where to place your units to get the maximum cooling effect.
Higher Velocity Systems
Another option that is slightly more complex than split-system AC is a high-velocity HVAC system, which uses thin, insulated tubing to deliver cool air around your home. Since this tubing is only 2 inches thick, it can be snaked through existing walls and ceilings in your home, without requiring any sort of major renovations such as the kind needed to install central AC in an older home. The tubing connects to central disks, which can be placed on the ceiling or high up on the walls in your rooms.
