Central Air Conditioners

Central air conditioners can truly be a game-changer in providing consistent comfort for any home.

If you’re considering central air, some ACs work with ceiling and floor ducts to provide more consistent temperatures throughout your home. Special air filters let them reduce pollutants and irritants like dust, dander, pollen, and dirt.

Benefits of Central Air Conditioning

Window air conditioners are loud, unsightly, and expensive to run. A 2,500-square-foot home would need about 56,000 BTUs to cool each room.

However, the same size home can keep rooms pleasant with 48,000 to 54,000 BTUs from a central AC and lower utility/energy costs by up to 40% by running one system instead of multiple window units.

Central air benefits include:

  • Save space, won’t block views or sunlight, and are more aesthetically pleasing
  • Boost your curb appeal, property value, and resale value
  • Cool your entire home or by zones to force air into specific rooms
  • Let you breathe healthier air indoors, which can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside
  • Improve airflow, regulate humidity, and some include air quality features
  • Work with smart thermostats you can program from anywhere
