To maximize the return on your investment, you should always do your research before choosing a new AC unit. If you’re looking for an AC replacement, a central AC system is a smart investment. It can distribute cool air more efficiently than a conventional AC unit, helping maintain a consistent level of indoor comfort in your home.
Unfortunately, there are widespread myths surrounding central AC units. The home air quality testing and HVAC technicians at Mason BPP have debunked some of the most common misconceptions about central AC units in this post.
Myth #1: Installing a Central AC Unit Requires a Lot of Remodeling
A lot of homeowners are hesitant about installing a new central AC unit because they’re concerned about additional remodeling costs. However, with newer units, this is no longer the case. Modern central units can fit neatly into any home, minimizing disruptions to your home’s interior design. And since the central unit is located outside, installing one saves space.
Myth #2: Central AC Units Are Noisy
Again, this is no longer the case for modern central AC units. Thanks to recent advancements in technology, some models have sound-dampening components that reduce noise, ensuring that you can relax in your home without having to worry about distractions or noise.
Here’s a tip: Indoor air quality can affect the level of comfort in your home. If you want to maximize indoor comfort, choose a central AC unit with air purifying capabilities and have a contractor conduct indoor air quality testing every year or so.
Myth #3 Running Central AC Units Costs a Fortune
Central AC units are more efficient than conventional models. If there’s an increase in your electricity bill, the likely culprit is your ductwork. Traditional ductwork is prone to leaks, which is why they should be routinely inspected by professional HVAC technicians. For more tips on how to make the most of your central AC unit, consult an experienced HVAC contractor.
