Packaged Air Conditioning Systems

If it’s time to choose a new air conditioning system for your home, there are many factors to consider. How many rooms do you need to cool? How big is your home? How hot does it get in the summer? If you want to cool more than two rooms or if you have a large room that needs exceptional cooling, a packaged air conditioning system may be the best option for you. Of course, now you must determine what type of packaged air system best meet your home comfort needs.

If you need help deciding which packaged air conditioner is best for your home, contact Bayonet Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning today.

How Packaged Air Conditioners Work

When you choose a packaged air conditioning system, there are two primary options for the layout of your new system. The first is to have a single unit that contains every important aspect of your AC system. This packaged unit will house your condenser, compressor, evaporator and expansion valve all together. When cool air is produced by your system, it is blown through the packaged unit into the ductwork and throughout your home.

There are other options as well, including an approach that houses the condenser and compressor in a single unit. Each room then has its own unit through which compressed gas will pass, drawing heat from the room and replacing it with cooled air. This way, you can choose which rooms to cool and you will have much more control your monthly air conditioning costs.

Packaged AC Options

Because there are so many options, the first thing you need to do is determine how much square footage needs to be cooled. You’ll need a trained professional to make these measurements. They will help you determine where cooling is most needed in your home and where you will need additional cooling units or ductwork.

Once you know exactly how much space you need to cool, you can move forward with the selection of your packaged air conditioning unit. Each unit has a different capacity and energy consumption rate. Check the SEER ratings to determine how efficient your air conditioner is. SEER ratings are generally between 13 and 18 with the higher numbers being better for your energy bill. Once you determine the size and type of system you need, it’s time for installation.
