Is Upgrading to a Central Air Conditioning System Worth It?

Posted on May 17, 2011Rick Welter

Central Air Conditioning VentI grew up with kids whose homes didn’t have a central air conditioner. Many families made due with a window unit to cool just one room. Years ago, when life moved at a slower pace, kids could take the heat. But today, when the humidity index reaches 80%, in the summer months, most kids want to stay indoors, in front of a fan, at the very least.

When deciding whether to invest in a central air conditioner vs. buying a window air conditioner, you want to weigh the pros and cons; consider comfort, cleanliness, quietude, as well as cash outlay.

How Cool Do You Want Your Home?

If you have a mid- to large-size home and are using more than two rooms regularly, you most likely will benefit from central air. Central air conditioning units more effectively deliver cool air to every room in the house all at once.  As a result, your home will remain consistently cooler and more comfortable than a window unit.

 

What’s Your Noise Tolerance?

Not only is a central air conditioning unit more efficient and effective in cooling your home, it will also rid your home of a noisy window unit.  With a window unit, while it may be a step up from an oscillating fan, you’re still hearing the motorized sounds of a compressor.

How Clean Do You Want Your Home?

With a window air conditioning unit, you still need to leave some windows open during the summer months for air to circulate. Dust, grime, pollen, and allergens—from traffic and trees—all find their way into your home.

Central air conditioning, of course, eliminates the need to open windows in your home; more effectively keeping those bad particles out.

 

How Much Cash Are You Really Saving?

Although window units may have a lower initial investment (running only about $95-200 per unit), if you need to cool more than one room in your home, in the long run, their lack of efficiency will end up costing you more money.

If you are still relying on a window unit to cool your home during those hot and humid Minnesota summer days, then call Welter Heating and Air Conditioning at 612 825-6867 to find out more about installing a central air conditioner.

And remember, if your central air conditioning system is more than 15 years old it is probably not running as efficiently as it could be and you may be losing money. So call Welter Heating and Air Conditioning today to request a quote on a new model.
