Living in the northeastern section of the country, central a/c isn’t entirely necessary, and all of us rely on the heating system for more than one-thirds of the year, however our summers are short plus often overcast, chilly plus wet! However, the two of us occasionally experience brutal heat plus humidity! The house becomes horribly hot, sticky plus uncomfortableâ€¦ It’s impossible to be productive during the afternoon, relax in the night or sleep at night. The hot, moist conditions are ideal for bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, dust mites plus several bugs. Opening the windows doesn’t help much. There is absolutely little breeze. The screens simply allow fumes, pollen plus exterior noise pollution inside. I’ve tried window air conditioners but didn’t adore them. They look ugly from the inside plus the outside plus eliminate the view from the window. On especially tepid afternoons plus mornings, window air conditioners struggle to handle the workload. I find it discouraging to install the units in the Springtime, remove them in the fall plus store them all winter. Investing into central a/c was a smart decision. I run the program a lot more than expected, often using only the fan to circulate plus filter the air. The central air conditioner keeps the entire house perfectly cool in addition to cleaner plus healthier. I spent a bit extra for an Energy Star rated AC that offers a 26 SEER plus features an adaptable-speed compressor; Because of this, the unit maintains a absolutely even temperature, makes absolutely little operational noise plus is charmingly energy efficient, then while our electric bills are entirely higher because of running the air conditioner, they aren’t inadequate.
