Living in Florida, we’re used to never-ending heat almost year round. So when temperatures spike in the summer, many homeowners inquire about adding additional air conditioning options to their home. If you’re wondering if your abode needs some extra cooling power, here’s what to consider first.
1. The Type of Home Comfort System You Already Have
If you think you need an additional air conditioning unit in your home, you should first consider what type of home comfort system you already have. If you rely on window units to cool your home, then adding a window unit can help improve the overall comfort of your home. However, window units will only be able to provide a meager amount of cooling power compared to a central air conditioning system. On the other hand, if your home has a central air conditioning system, adding a unit becomes tricky. If your home isn’t comfortable, instead of looking to add another unit, contact a local HVAC professional about maintaining your system. Chances are, a little routine AC maintenance can help improve the comfort of your space.
2. The Size of Your Home
The square footage of your home directly impacts the way your home is cooled. While a small window unit will not be powerful enough to cool a large home, a central air conditioning system isn’t necessarily appropriate for a 350 square foot studio. If you’re living in a large space and are dependent on window units, adding more window units or upgrading your system to a central HVAC system is likely a good option.
3. The Layout
How you cool your home is likely influenced by the layout of your home. For example, homeowners that rely on window units to keep cool tend to have different units in different parts of the house. The average home might have a window unit in the living room, as well as the different bedrooms. If your home isn’t as comfortable in certain areas of your home, adding an air conditioning unit can drastically increase your overall comfort.
