The central air conditioning system is one of the most important investments a Delray Beach, Florida, homeowner can make. Whether you are building a new home or looking to replace an existing unit, packaged AC systems are a smart choice for many Florida homeowners and here a few reasons.
Central air conditioners are available as either conventional split-system units or packaged units, but they both work in much the same way. Split systems utilize an outdoor metal cabinet and an indoor cabinet, but the packaged system only consists of one outdoor unit. Both use the home’s ductwork to deliver conditioned air throughout the home, and both are controlled via a standard or programmable thermostat. When you favor central air conditioning over window units or a ductless mini-split, a packaged system is a great option.
One Convenient Location
While traditional split and ductless systems have their advantages, a packaged AC system’s components are all in one space-saving location outside the home. In most cases, the unit is either placed on the roof or on an outdoor concrete slab next to the house’s foundation. The packaged unit contains the evaporator, condenser, and compressor, making it easy to maintain and eliminating the need for an extra indoor unit. You just can’t beat the space-saving efficiency of having the system limited to one packaged unit.
Packaged AC systems are among the cheapest types of system you can have installed. Packaged units already come pre-charged with refrigerant, and since they are only installed outside, you will enjoy a much lower installation costs than you would with a conventional split air conditioning system.
Many packaged units also include a natural gas furnace or electric heating coils. This eliminates the need for an indoor furnace, or extra space, further reducing installation costs and allowing homeowners to enjoy desirable indoor temperatures all year long.
