Which Air Conditioning System Is Best For You?

When you are building a new home or looking to upgrade your current HVAC system, a package unit can provide the ideal system with one outdoor unit and ductwork to circulate cool air through your home in the summer and warm air in the winter. A package unit, or central heater/air conditioner, will offer a wide range of benefits for many commercial and residential spaces, including long-term reliability, optimal comfort, and convenience. If you are in search of a new HVAC system for your home or business in Memphis, Choate’s can help you choose the best unit for your needs and budget, offering expert installation, maintenance, and repairs for all brands and models.

Everything You Need In One Unit
Combined with ductwork, a package unit will take care of your heating, cooling, and ventilation needs in every season. If you have existing ductwork, a package unit will be among the most cost effective choices for upgrading or replacing an outdated unit. Even if you do not have adequate ducts in place, our team can install new ducts to work with your central air conditioner.

The Right Unit for Your Space
Before you even start looking into trusted brands like Carrier for your package unit, you will want to know what capacity unit you need. Both residential and commercial installations will have similar guidelines that can point to the right unit, which our technicians will expertly install to ensure a smooth performance. It is essential to work with a highly trained team of HVAC professionals like ours, because a poorly installed or a unit that does not fit your needs can result in costly repairs, high energy bills, and an inconsistent performance. When you call on us for a consultation to discuss your new package unit, here are the most important factors you’ll discuss:

  • Square footage – The amount of space you need to heat and cool will determine how many BTUs, or British Thermal Units, your home or commercial space requires.
  • Energy usage – Modern central units are designed with energy efficiency in mind, but they can still vary. Therefore, it is important to look at the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) of a given unit before making your purchase. With a more efficient unit, you can save substantially on your energy costs over time. Because package units are among the longest-lasting types of air conditioners, you will want to know that you are investing in years of energy efficiency for your home.
  • Technology – Once you determine the specs you need for your unit, you will want to look to the technology available to pair with it. Features like programmable thermostats can further maximize the performance of your unit and bring you closer to home automation for total comfort around the clock.

Custom Ductwork
If you are outfitting a space with a new HVAC system, Choate’s is a top choice for your installation, because we offer custom and standard ductwork from our own sheet metal shop in Memphis. Paired with leading air conditioning brands, our ductwork can deliver an outstanding performance for years to come.

Whether Commercial or Residential Package Units, we have the experience and knowledge to get your installation job done right.

When you think about air conditioning, you might picture a central A/C system, which uses an external air conditioning unit to move cold air through ductwork to cool a whole home or commercial space with strategically placed ducts throughout the space. While this is a common type of system, it is not the only option. There are ductless air conditioning solutions available for areas where you do not want to invest in new ductwork or you want a varying degree of cooling for each individual room. Split air conditioners are one possible solution, which can be more attractive and permanent than window units with greater flexibility than a central air system can provide.

What is a split air conditioner?
A split air conditioner combines an exterior condenser with an indoor unit that has its own thermostat for optimal temperature control. Some split systems can connect up to 5 interior units with a single outdoor condenser, making it possible to cool a whole home with a split air conditioner. Split air conditioners can be more cost effective to operate, because you have the option to only cool rooms that are currently occupied. Additionally, there is no loss of cold air through ductwork, which can occur with a central air system. However, the installation cost of a split air system can be higher than other types of air conditioners. Therefore, it is important to work with an experienced installer like Choate’s to make the right air conditioning choice for your home.

Where are split air systems most effective?
There are many situations in which a split air system can be beneficial. Hotels and apartment buildings may benefit from split air, because each interior unit can be controlled individually by tenants. Buildings without existing ductwork might also be ideal for installation of split air systems, especially with older properties that may not support standard duct systems. Homeowners often choose split air systems for home additions, since the cost of ductwork can be eliminated. With modern design choices for interior split air units, you can fully customize your system to fit your specific needs. Our technicians will ensure that you have a split air conditioner with the right capacity for your space and a design you prefer, allowing you to enjoy cool comfort without spending more than you need to.
