It’s tempting to go with a window unit for your cooling needs, but a central air conditioning system will perform better. Because the system delivers cool air around a home more evenly and consistently, stays out of the homeowner’s way, and controls humidity levels better than a window unit, a central air conditioner is the superior cooling option for most homes.
Distribute Air Evenly Throughout Home
Window units have difficulty cooling much more than a single room. Central air conditioners can deliver cool air throughout the entire home. Duct systems make this possible. Air ducts are like cold air highways with exit ramps in every room in the house. If you’re looking for an air conditioner that makes your home more comfortable as a whole, central air conditioners are a better option.
Operate Securely And Safely
More than half of a window unit typically hangs outside the window it’s attached to. This creates a sometimes precarious position depending on where your window is placed. If it’s placed in an upstairs window, it could fall on something or someone and cause major damage. On lower levels, a distracted passerby could hit his or her head on the unit. The main unit of a central air system sits out of the way, usually on a home’s roof or in the backyard.
Reduce Indoor Humidity Levels
Because central air conditioners bring in and circulate more air around a home as a whole, these units do a better job of controlling humidity levels compared to other cooling options. Humidity has a negative effect on cool and comfortable temperatures in a home—and high humidity levels encourage mold growth.
