Which AC System is Best for You?

July 17, 2019

People who move to Oshawa are often surprised by how hot it gets in the summer. They assume that since we’re in Canada, we have no need for air conditioning. But the fact is that our province gets summer temperatures that come close to 30 degrees Celsius. Most folks want air conditioning when it gets that hot. The professionals at Comfort Masters Ltd. are here to help customers choose the best types of AC system for their homes.

Central Air

A central air conditioning system is the most common type found in modern homes, especially homes that are larger. A central air conditioner sends cool air to the rooms of the house through vents, and the warmed air is returned through return ducts to start the cooling cycle all over again.

Ductless Mini-Splits

If your home didn’t come with central air conditioning but you want something like it, installing a ductless mini-split system may be the solution for you. These systems have an outdoor condenser that connects to several indoor units that are usually installed near the ceiling. Zoning the house with a ductless mini-split system is also easier than it is with central air conditioning.

Window Air Conditioner

These units can cool only one room at a time, but sometimes that is all a homeowner needs. They’re just about right for a small space such as a studio apartment.

Geothermal Air Conditioning

This is a system that heats in the winter and cools in the summer. It takes advantage of the fact that the ground stays at around 13 degrees no matter the temperature of the air. In the summer, the system pulls heat from your home and sends it to coils buried in the earth. In the winter, it pulls heat from the earth and sends it into your home.
