Air Conditioning Tips
A quick air conditioning tip that can save anyone some money in regards to their cooling coil. The cooling coil is what cools down the air that is pumped into your home. If you remember to dust this coil, there will be more surface area that comes into contact with the cooling coil, so air getting pumped into your home has a better chance of getting cooled down.

Ductless Split Air Conditioning Systems
Ductless split and mini–split systems are relatively new types of air conditioners that have been growing in popularity in recent years. As their name implies, these air conditioning systems manage to cool your home without needing ductwork for the cooled air to pass through. This is of particular benefit if your home doesn’t already have ducts installed, or if there simply is no room for them, even if you wanted to put them in.
A ductless split AC system is made up of an outdoor compressor and at least one indoor unit that can be mounted on your wall or ceiling. These indoor units are connected to the compressor through a refrigerant line, and take care of circulating and cooling the air in the room they’re installed in.
These ductless systems have many benefits, including a greatly reduced installation cost because there is no need to put in ducts. Mini–splits are available for small spaces, such as one or two rooms, and can also be expanded to create up to eight separate climate zones in your home. This gives you a much more refined level of control than you would have with most traditional, duct–based systems. These air conditioning units are generally very energy efficient as well.
Packaged Air Conditioning Systems
If you have a larger home you need to cool or if you already have ductwork in place, you may want to invest in a packaged air conditioning system. These are also made up of outdoor and indoor components, but in the case of the packaged system, the indoor unit is an air handler or furnace that manages the movement of air through the ducts in the house.
Packaged air conditioners work well for moderate–sized to large houses. They are available in many different sizes, so you should have no trouble finding one that will work for the specific dimensions of your home.
