Types of Air Conditioner Units

HVAC units come in all shapes and sizes, making it important to research which model you have or which option is best for AC installation. The correct model can depend on your home’s size, location, and individual cooling needs. A few of the AC types we work on include:

  • Packaged Central Air - Packaged systems have all unit parts contained in one unit, installed outside, and circulate air throughout the home via ductwork.
  • Split System - A system where one unit, installed outside the home, connects via ductwork to a part installed inside the house, usually inside a closet or in a basement.
  • Ductless System - This type of system has one part installed outside the home that connects to individual units inside the house via tubing and wiring instead of ductwork.
  • Geothermal System - These systems utilize the Earth’s natural temperature via an underground loop, connecting to a pump inside the home and distributing cooled air through ductwork.
  • Evaporative cooler & swamp cooler

Common Problems with an AC

In order to understand what is wrong with your cooling system, it is helpful to know the basic anatomy of your air conditioning unit. Generally speaking, your air conditioner has four components: Evaporator Coils, Condenser, Compressor, and Expansion Valve. The following are some common reasons we get called for air conditioner repairs on these parts:

  • Evaporator - Many times during the summer months, we get calls about frozen evaporator coils. Frozen coils can happen when you run your AC all night. If the air exiting your supply register feels warm, you will know you have a frozen evaporator coil.
  • Condenser - A lot of moisture passes through your condensate drain. Therefore, it may clog up with debris from time to time. Clogs can also lead to water damage if you don’t have it repaired in time.
  • Compressor - The compressor is the most critical component of your AC system. You can tell if your compressor is malfunctioning by feeling the temperature from your return vent. If it feels warm, your compressor may be to blame.
  • Expansion Valve - When your expansion valve is obstructed or stuck open, this can lead to high pressure in the unit, causing the compressor to overheat.

Requirements for Installation

AC Installation is not a “do-it-yourself” process. There are many items to review while deciding which unit could be right for you. Here are some professional tips to keep in mind before making your final decision:

  • Giving your home a cooling system will help keep humidity levels at bay.
  • Selecting the same type of AC as your prior system can save you time and money since it typically will require less reconfiguration.
  • Ductless split air conditioning is a great option for homes without prior ductwork because installation is much easier.
  • If the unit is too small or too large for the size of your home, it can lead to uneven air flow within rooms, not properly doing its job.
