Central air conditioning, commonly referred to as central air is an air conditioning system that uses ducts to distribute cooled air to more than one room in your home. With a typical split system, the condenser is located in an outdoor unit and the evaporator coil is mounted in the furnace or air handler. With a package system, all components are located in a single outdoor unit that may be located on the ground or roof and are usually for larger commercial application.
Why choose a central air conditioning system instead of an in-wall air conditioner?
Central air conditioning performs like a regular air conditioner but has several added benefits:
- When the blower turns on, room air is drawn in from various parts of the home through return-air ducts. This air is pulled through a filter where airborne particles such as dust and allergens are removed. More sophisticated filters may even remove microscopic pollutants as well. The filtered air is routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms. Whenever the air conditioner is running, this cycle repeats continually.
- Because the condensing unit is located outside the home, it offers a lower level of indoor noise than free-standing air conditioning units.
