The Different Types of Air Conditioning

There are many different types of air conditioning available on the market so choosing one to suit your requirements can be a challenge. The size of the room will also influence your decision on what type of air conditioner you require.

Window air conditioners are commonly used for single rooms as they are easy to install. This type of unit is usually installed on a windowsill and contains all the main components in one box.

Split air conditioners use two parts to cool the room. The outdoor unit houses components such as the compressor, condenser and expansion valve. The indoor unit houses the evaporator and cooling fan. Modern split units are aesthetically pleasing and don’t take up as much space as a window air conditioner. Another advantage of a split air conditioner is they can be used to cool one or two rooms.

If you are cooling a larger space at home or your business, then a packaged air conditioner could be what you need. The condenser, compressor, expansion valve and evaporator are housed in a single box. The air is blown through to vents located in various rooms. This makes packaged air conditioning an efficient way of cooling multiple rooms.

Cooling big buildings can be a bit trickier as using a unit for each room is inefficient and expensive. A more efficient way of cooling a large building is to have a huge compressor capable of producing hundreds of tons of cool air. This is often referred to as central air conditioning. Shopping malls, galleries and warehouses are only capable of being cooled by using this type of air conditioning.

Having your air conditioning installed professionally is important for the efficiency of your system. If you’re in the East Midlands area then give air conditioning Derby a try for anything you require.
