Choices for Air Conditioning
Here are the air conditioning products Cal-West Air Conditioning carries:
A split-system AC has two units: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit, also known as the evaporator unit, contains the evaporator coils and the indoor blower. The outdoor unit contains the compressor, the condenser and the condenser fan. A split-system AC needs ductwork to deliver the cool air.
A ductless split-system has an outdoor unit very similar to that of a traditional split-system AC, but instead of having a single, large indoor unit, a ductless system uses individual blowers to deliver the cool air. The blowers are connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit through an exterior wall. Inside this conduit are the refrigerant line, power cord and condensate pipe. A single outdoor unit can support up to 4 indoor blowers.
A packaged unit holds all the air conditioner’s components – the evaporator, condenser, compressor, etc., – in a single metal cabinet. This type of unit can be placed on the ground or on a rooftop. Packaged units are typically used for large homes and some commercial spaces.
Each of the above air conditioners are energy efficient and will affectively cool your home, but to determine which air conditioner is the best match for you, it’s best to work with trained professionals.
