Granbury Trane Dealer, Glenn-Aire, On The Differences Between Window Vs. Central Units.
In the course of the hot months of summer, having an air conditioner can make the heat more bearable and provide you an excellent oasis from the sun and intense humidity of the outdoors. However, no matter how old your unit is, from 1 month to 10 year, they are just like any other machine: occasionally running into mechanical problems.
There are several brands/sizes of air conditioning units, each requiring their own unique treatment, as trouble shooting for each will fluctuate. The 2 two most common types, Window vs. Central Air units, have their own unique needs:
Window Air Conditioners
These tend to run into more problems compared to Central units due to their small size, as well as the high-output demands that customers place on them. The most common issue with these units is their lack of appropriate protection during cooler months of the year. For instance, failing to cover the unit with a tarp during the winter can lead to frozen parts. Once the unit is started again, the damage incurred will cause the unit to completely fail or work at a diminished capacity. Fortunately, broken parts can often be replaced, but sometimes the damage can cause the entire unit to be switched out.
Central Air Conditioning Units
These have more moving parts than a window unit, which means that when something goes wrong, it tends to be more expensive and involved. Therefore, it’s very important to have a bi-annual check-up of your unit from a professional company, like Glenn-Aire. We will inspect the entire unit, clean essential parts and ensure that it won’t break down during the hottest days of the year.
