Lansing Home Air Conditioning Service: High Efficiency AC
If you’re a Lansing, MI resident, or any other mid-Michigan city for that matter, you’re probably well aware of the state’s climate. Frigid winters make way for hot and humid summers, which warrant the need for a quality air conditioning unit. When temps rise, Applegate Home Comfort wants to ensure our fellow Michigan residents are adequately prepared, and we are committed to doing so through our home air conditioning service.
Within our AC services, we not only offer installation, but air conditioning repairs as well! Here at Applegate, we utilize high-efficiency air conditioning to keep your home cooled and your energy bills low. To get a better understanding of our home air conditioning service, take a moment to learn more about central AC and how it’ll provide optimal comfort for you and your home throughout Michigan’s warm summers.
Home Air Conditioning: Central AC
Like we said, Bath, Holt, Lansing, and other mid-Michigan cities experience quite the warm and humid summers, making an efficient air conditioning unit essential. In providing that much-needed comfort, Applegate offers high-efficiency, central AC units to Michigan residents.
Using a system of supply and return ducts, central air conditioners circulate cool air throughout the home, sending the cool air through registers, or vents in your floors, walls, and ceilings. As the cool air in the home starts to get warm, it is circulated back to the central AC unit before returning through the ducts and back into the home as cool air. Given Michigan’s aforementioned humid climate, you may need to complement your central AC unit with a dehumidifying heat pipe, which helps the AC unit dehumidify and cool air.
Selecting a Central AC Unit
When it comes to selecting which type of AC unit is best suited for your home, there are a few things to consider. In regards to energy efficiency, most experts suggest purchasing an AC unit with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of at least SEER-13. A unit’s SEER is based on the cooling a system puts out for each unit of energy it consumes.
Additionally, within central air conditioning, there are two types of units: split-system and packaged units. Take a look below to get more information about each type:
- Split-System: In a split-system air conditioner, the unit outside the house contains the condenser and compressor, while an inside unit houses the evaporator. Because many split-system units also contain the furnace, it’s often the best choice for homes with a furnace, but no AC.
- Packaged: With a packaged AC, the unit houses the evaporator, condenser and compressor. Quite often, packaged AC units will also house electric or gas furnaces. With this, homeowners don’t need to install an indoor furnace.
Of course, Applegate Home Comfort won’t let you make these decisions alone. To truly find an AC unit that’s most appropriate for your home and needs, an experienced professional is necessary. We possess the skills, knowledge and experience to help you choose the perfect unit, as it’s part of our home air conditioning service!
