Central Air Conditioners in Minneapolis, MN

The ideal way for most homes to receive excellent air conditioning is with a central AC system.

Window AC vs. Central AC

When the window air conditioning unit was invented, it was a huge step forward in the affordability of residential cooling. But that was back in the 1950s. Today, window ACs are out–of–date and a central air conditioning system is the far better option. Here’s why we think you should get rid of those old window AC units:

  • Limited, uneven cooling – A window AC can only cool a single room, and even then the cooling is often uneven. You’ll need an AC unit in each bedroom to even hope to have decent cooling coverage.
  • Poor efficiency – The most expensive window air units still have energy efficiency much lower than that of central air units.
  • Noise – Because all the components of a window AC are stored right inside the house, they generate excessive amounts of noise that can disrupt conversations and other activities.
  • Unattractive appearance – A window unit blocks view and is just not pleasant to look at. Worse, they can decrease the value of your house: realtors will tell you that homes that use window ACs rather than central AC systems are harder to sell.
  • Water drips and heat loss – Window units drip out water during the summer, which can create mold and mildew. During the winter, window units allow heat to easily escape (unless you lug them out of the windows every year).

We Offer Central AC Installation and Replacement

The most common type of central air units is the split air conditioner. It’s called that because it splits the components between indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit contains the compressor and fan, and the indoor unit has the air handler and blower fan to send cooled air into a ductwork system. Installing a new split air conditioner is a big job, but we have more than 25 years of history delivering great results to our customers. Talk to us if you’re looking for the first installation for a new house or if you think it’s time to replace your current system.
