You might be wondering if it is worth the cost of having central air installed in your home. After all, you could just get a couple of window units for a few hundred dollars and go that route. Besides, you have friends who do this and it seems to work out just fine for them.
Don’t be fooled, while buying a couple of window units might seem like a good idea and answer to your problem of being too hot in your home, there are clear advantages of having central air installed. Total Care Heating and Air, your air conditioning repair service in Riverside, breaks down the reasons why central air is better than a window unit or two.
It Adds Value
We get it, it kind of hurts having to fork out so much money for central air. But you have to look at it as an investment. Surely, when the time comes to sell your home you will be glad you have the added value of central air. Potential buyers certainly will, to be sure. Home buyers are looking for features that will keep them comfortable and make their lives easier, and that is just what central air does.
Easy to Operate
If you have ever had to deal with a window unit, we can tell you it is a huge pain. Window units are heavy and never seem to fit like you think it should. You can’t install it by yourself, you need a strong companion to help. You get it all installed and running only to have to take it out and store it in the winter.
Once your central unit is installed, you are good to go for many years. All you have to do is set your programmable thermostat and then go about your daily routine.
Central Air Keeps You Safe
With central air, all of your windows are closed and locked at all times, unless you choose to open them for whatever reason. Window units mean you have windows that are always open, even when you are in bed or not at home. This is especially worrisome if your window unit is in a window on ground level.
Peace and Quiet
If you have ever tried to watch television or have a conversation with somebody in a room with a window unit, it’s hard to hear anything going on. This is because window units are quite noisy and there just isn’t any way to avoid it.
The noisy part of a central air unit is installed outside and you can hardly hear it when you are indoors. Enjoy the peace and quiet.
Window units never fit properly and allow outdoor air to seep into your home, which isn’t good if you suffer allergies. Central air units receive air that has been filtered and freshened.
