If you’ve been sweltering through the summer, it’s time to do something about it. Even if you have an air conditioner, it may not be cooling your home sufficiently.

Some Basics About Central Air Conditioning
If you’re used to window units, central air conditioning operates differently. The main difference, according to The Spruce, is that window units are designed to cool a room or a specific area of your home, while central air conditioning is built to cool your entire home. A central air system uses two different coils to cool homes.
The system’s cooling compressor is set outside of the home. This is separate from the fan unit which will blow air throughout the home. The outdoor compressor is called the condensing coil. Its components include the compressor itself, the condenser fan, and a grill to protect you from being cut by the fan blades. Two lines which contain refrigerant run from the compressor into the home where it reaches the other coil called the evaporator coil.
Refrigerant runs through the evaporator coil and the fan blows air through the coil. Heat is absorbed into the coil and the refrigerant flows back outside where the heat is released.
When you install central air conditioning, the technician from Tragar will install ductwork in all of the rooms of your home. This requires mathematical working precision to find the optimal areas to place the ducts.
After the calculations are made, a decision will be made about the size of your unit. According to This Old House, size will be expressed in tonnage or in BTU per hour. Undersized units won’t cool rooms enough and will have to run longer, costing you money. An oversized unit won’t lower humidity properly.
Once your unit is installed, we’ll tell you how to maintain the system, so it will run at peak efficiency. You can set up a maintenance schedule with Tragar and we’ll keep things in good working order.
