Types of Air Conditioners in Harford County, MD
Split System Air Conditioner
A split system uses indoor and outdoor components to cool your home. This is one of the most popular types of air conditioning systems found in single-family homes. The exterior component condenses cold air and runs it through the tubing and into the residence. The interior component distributes the cool air through a fan. We specialize in providing affordable split system and central air conditioner systems in your area.
Energy-efficient Heat Pump System
Heat pumps are a type of split system that cools your house in the summer and heats it in the winter. Depending on your preference, heat pumps may use an air source or geothermal method to release or pull air. Air source heat pumps release or extract heat from the outdoor air. Geothermal, also called ground source, pulls or deposits the heat into the earth. Learn more about our heat pump services.
Central Air Conditioners
This type of A/C unit is able to cool each room in your house quietly and efficiently. Central air conditioning systems consist of a condensing unit outside the home and an evaporative unit next to the furnace. The condensing unit generates cool air. Then the evaporative unit pushes the cool air throughout the home by using the furnace duct system.
Ductless Split Heating and Cooling Systems
When a central air conditioning system is not viable in your home we can install a ductless split system. Like central AC systems, mini splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units. Call Anchor Mechanical for all of your ductless heating and AC service needs in Harford County.
Air Conditioning FAQs
How often should I replace my air conditioning filters?
Air filters are not all the same and quality may vary. Because if this, you should follow the recommended replacement schedule that each filter comes with. Some customers choose to use reusable washable filters. You should clean these types of filters at least once a month for optimal efficiency.
Are there any air conditioning systems that are safe for the environment?
Yes! There are several Eco-friendly air conditioning units out there from major manufactures. Eco-friendly air conditioning is becoming more widespread and affordable. Two-stage compressors and geothermal heat pumps help make your units more energy efficient. We can install units that are ENERGY STAR certified.
How do I know if my air conditioning unit is large enough to efficiently cool my home?
Many think that having the biggest air conditioning unit will efficiently cool their home. Although this is not always the case. A replacement air conditioning system should always fit your property according to square footage. First, you need to determine the square footage of your home. There are a few different ways to do this, but one common method is to measure the length and width of your living spaces and multiply them together.
Next, you need to calculate how many BTUs you need for your square footage. The number of BTUs needed will vary depending on the climate zone in which you live. Our experienced technicians will calculate the proper size of unit needed for your home, and make only the most relevant recommendations.
Can you put AC in a house that doesn’t have it?
Your best option is to get a ductless mini-split AC system if your house does not have an AC or ductwork installed. This gives you the ability to cool your full house without needing to install ductwork.
What is a good SEER rating for an air conditioner?
Homeowners should always be sure to look for the SEER rating when shopping for an air conditioner. This stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It indicates a ratio of how many BTUs of cooling power it produces over the amount of electricity it uses. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the unit is and the lower your home energy bill will be. Additionally, having a high efficiency unit can also lower your tax rates.
