There are many types of air conditioning systems that can be used to cool your home.
The two most popular are; central air conditioning and room air conditioning.
Central air conditioning Newcastle air conditioning cools your whole house by circulating air through ducts that are installed within your home. The hot air from your home is pulled through these ducts in order to be transformed into cold air. Once the air is cold it is then pumped back down the ducts and cools your home. The duct system is based on a system of supply and return. Air continues to be circulated through the system in order to reach the desired temperature intended for your whole home. Considering the fact that your home will be one solid temperature, the central air system will work at a solid pace in order to cool your home.
Room air conditioning, better known as window or wall air conditioners, can only cool a certain amount of space. The unit is mounted into the wall or window of a specific room. The plus size to window air conditioning is that unless it is not a large unit it does not need its own, most of the air conditioners will plug right into a power outlet in your home. Window air conditioners are single, self sustaining units that exhaust heat and humidity from the specific room to the outside. Similar to how a car’s air conditioning works, the single unit will only be able to cool a certain square footage. For example; if you buy a unit in order to cool the downstairs of your home, depending on how big the space is, the whole downstairs could be cooled. But if you were to close doors only one area would be cool and the other areas that were cooled off would be sweltering hot. Same goes for the second story of your home. Hot air rises so all that hot air that was once in your house is now upstairs. Window or wall air conditioners do not take out any hot air from your home in order to recirculate it and turn it into cool air. This kind of air conditioning takes the hot air from outside and turns it into cool air in order to be circulated into your home.
