Central air: Better comfort and efficiency

Do you already have central air conditioning in your home? If it’s more than 15 years old, your system is on borrowed time. Now is a great time to upgrade to a new central a/c system. Not only will you get superior comfort, but it will pay you back from the day you install it with dramatically improved energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a new central air conditioning system could cut your cooling costs by as much as 40%!

Are you looking to add central air conditioning to your home? Today’s central air conditioning systems offer superior comfort and better energy efficiency than window units. You can zone your cooling, and also use programmable or smart thermostats to turn the A/C off while you’re away and have the house cool when you return. Plus if you install a Mini-Split Air Condition system, they can be installed without ducts. Therefore, you can avoid the energy loss associated with the ductwork of larger central forced air systems

Another Ductless option – Heat Pumps!

If you use a boiler to heat your home, you likely do not have ductwork needed for central air conditioning. AFC has a solution that’s better than adding ductwork or being stuck with inefficient, noisy, unattractive window A/C units: Mitsubishi heat pumps!

We can install your home’s heat pump in as little as one day. With heat pumps, you can zone your home’s cooling for maximum energy efficiency. Here’s how heat pumps work.

Heat pumps have only two major components, the outdoor compressor unit and the indoor air handler. The compressor is connected to the condenser with a tube that also houses power and communication lines.
 
The compressor compresses refrigerant. That compressed refrigerant is then sent to the condenser where it releases its heat, which is dispersed out of the unit to the outdoors. The refrigerant, now a liquid, is sent through the conduit to the evaporator. The refrigerant absorbs heat from warm indoor air that is blown over the evaporator coils. The now-cooled air is sent out of the air handler and back into your home.
 
Here’s an EXTRA bonus: Reverse this process, and you’ll have high-efficiency home heating in the winter with a Mitsubishi heat pump.
