What is central air conditioning and how does it work?
A central air conditioning system cools your home with air that is pushed through insulated ductwork to vents distributed throughout the home. The air is distributed by the furnace or the air handler blower motor and is cooled as it passes over the attached cooling evaporator coil. The coil has copper lines that flow with Freon, and are fed by an outdoor condenser that regulates the flow of the Freon and creates the cooling effect. This cooled air becomes warmer as it circulates through the home; then it is pulled back to the central air conditioner through return ducts and registers and distributed again. A thermostat controls the temperature by sending a signal.
Are all houses capable of having central air installed?
Yes, as long as there is adequate space for the equipment and ductwork to be installed.
What is the typical installation process?
Efficiency, reliability, performance and safety are directly related to the quality of installation, proper sizing and air distribution. Therefore, proper installation and choosing the right size are the most important factors to provide maximum operating efficiency and performance of the system you buy. It's important that you get the right equipment for your specific needs and a guarantee that the system will perform to your expectations.
For a new furnace and air conditioner with ductwork: a furnace or air handler with evaporator coil is installed in a closet, garage or attic, and attached to sheet metal plenum and ductwork. A large vent called a return vent will be cut in and attached to the main plenum. This circulates the air and draws in warm or cold air to the system to be heated or cooled. To power and control the system operation and temperature, wires are installed from the furnace to a thermostat on the wall nearest the return vent and a 110-volt circuit is attached to the home's main panel. The ductwork is installed in the attic or in the crawl space and run to each room. Vents are cut in to each room with registers to cover the openings and direct the airflow. The outdoor air conditioning condensing unit is installed on the side or back yard with Freon and electrical lines running to the indoor coil and furnace. In addition, a 220-volt electrical line runs from the outdoor unit and attached to the home's main electrical panel to provide power to the unit.
How long is the typical installation process?
One week for a new heating and air conditioning installation with ductwork.
What is the typical price range of having one installed?
The price range is based on the size of the home and system.
Standard efficiency: $8,000-$12,000
High efficiency: $10,000-$15,000
