Why It’s Time to Get Rid of That Window Unit

Why It's Time to Get Rid of That Window Unit

Ah, the window unit…The bulky, loud, and insufficient way to cool your home. Sounds great, right? While window units do have some cooling power, the contraptions come with their fair share of inconveniences, including their aesthetics, noise level and cooling capacity. And lets face it – as a Floridian, you can’t afford to have a home comfort system that isn’t as efficient as possible. If you’re still sporting window units in your home, learn why it’s time to upgrade to a central air conditioning system, here:

1. Aesthetically Pleasing

No matter how many DIY projects you do in an attempt to disguise your window unit, the cumbersome appliances just aren’t aesthetically pleasing. Even worse, they block any sort of view from whatever window they’re located in. Central air conditioning systems are aesthetically pleasing because they house the condenser unit outside, rather than in the window. And while you may not fancy yourself an interior design guru, everyone can appreciate the sleek design on a central air conditioning system – and the fact that it’s located out of sight.

2. Virtually Noiseless

One of the biggest inconveniences of window units is their noise level. Window units are partially located inside of your home, meaning their sound is located inside too.

Unfortunately, many window units can be loud and disruptive, which is troublesome if your window unit is close to your bed or any area where you need peace and quiet. Central air conditioning systems on the other hand, position the loudest component outdoors and are virtually noiseless, except for maybe a dull hum.

3. Complete Comfort Control

Without a doubt, the most inconvenient thing about window units is that they only cool a particular area, meaning you will need multiple window units in order to cool your home. A single unit in the living room for example, won’t do much to cool your bedroom at the opposite end of your home. Even with multiple window units, your home will still have cold spots and hot spots depending on the month. Investing in a central air conditioning system takes care of this problem easily. By directing ductwork to each room in your home, cool and conditioned air is evenly dispersed.
