Central air conditioners are one of the most popular cooling systems on the market today. But how exactly do they work, you may be wondering? It all begins with the thermostat. When the temperature in your home rises above what you’ve set it at, your thermostat sends a signal to the circuit board in your furnace. From there, the blower motor and condenser turn on, and warm air is drawn into your ductwork and cooled as it passes over the evaporator coil. The cool air then makes its way into your home via the air vents. Meanwhile, the refrigerant in your air conditioner absorbs the heat from the air as it passes through the evaporator coil. Next, the heated refrigerant is pumped to the condenser or outdoor portion of your central air conditioner. The condenser blows outside air across a different set of coils, removing any heat from the home that was absorbed by the refrigerant. This process continues until your home has been cooled to the desired temperature.
Central air conditioning offers many benefits to Parksville homeowners. First, central air conditioning units are quick and efficient. If you’ve never had central air before, you've probably gotten used to how long it takes to cool your home. But with a central unit, gone are the days of waiting hours for your house to come down in temperatures. Instead, your house will be cool and comfortable in no time, regardless of the size. Second, central air conditioners are known for making little noise. Other types of air conditioners, like window or wall units can be loud, but central air conditioners can operate quietly since the loud part of them (the condenser unit) is located outside the home. Another benefit of central air conditioning is that it can reduce the cost of your monthly energy bills. If your home is equipped with a smart thermostat, you will have greater control over your air conditioner, allowing you to turn it on remotely so it’s only in use when you need it to be. This means reduced energy consumption and a lower energy bill! Finally, improved air quality is another benefit of installing a central air conditioning unit in your Parksville home. A central air conditioning system uses air filters that filter out dust, pollen, spores, dirt, and other grime, preventing it from entering your home. So long as you clean your air filters regularly, central air can boost the indoor air quality of your home.
There are two main types of central air conditioners: split systems and packaged units. Split-system central air conditioners utilize an outdoor metal cabinet containing the condenser and compressor and an indoor cabinet containing the evaporator. Meanwhile, in a packaged unit, the condenser, compressor, and evaporator are all located in one cabinet, typically positioned on the roof or next to the home’s foundation.

"This company installed a heat pump and modified my oil furnace as secondary heat after I had been told by another well known company that the furnace could not be modified as it was too old, at ten years! I was impressed with the tidy and speedy installation .We have been delighted with the Heat-pump and especially the running costs. Over the last two years of operation we have averaged $2.51 a day for heating/cooling our 2000 sq.ft. home 24/7."
