Central Air Conditioning
At JK Mechanical, we want to make sure that your family stays cool, comfortable, and healthy during the hot summer months. Central air conditioning is one of the best ways to keep your home pleasant as the outdoors grows hot and humid. Whether you are thinking of installing a new central air conditioner, updating your old system, or getting service and maintenance, we want to help you through every step of the process.
The Benefits of Central AC
Central air conditioning systems offer a number of advantages that window units or single-room air conditioners simply can’t compete with. One of the best benefits of central air is air quality control. In central air systems, the air is drawn in through the outside unit and passes through filters. These filters help to prevent things from entering your home, such as:
- Pollen and other plant materials
Central air conditioners keep these things out so you have fresh, clean air inside at all times. This can help to prevent a number of respiratory issues, and improve your family’s overall health — something that window units do not offer.
Central air systems are a more modern, convenient way to cool your home. The outside location of the condenser, fan, and compressor mean that central air conditioners are less noisy and more attractive than window units. They are also easy to operate, since the touch of a button can adjust the temperature of your entire home — instead of having to adjust several window units.
If you are interested in improving the comfort, appearance, and air quality in your home, it’s time to contact JK Mechanical. Talk to one of our specialists to learn more about how to select the right central air system for your home.
Upgrading Your System
Updating your HVAC system may seem like an unnecessary expense. If you are happy with the way your old unit is running, you may wonder why you should spend money to purchase a new one. The truth of the matter is that your old air conditioner is probably very inefficient and is likely costing you money.
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it could be costing you more money than you know. Upgrading to a new central air system helps you save in the long run. It is estimated that by updating your system, you could save up to 40% on the cost of your energy bill. Newer air conditioners can keep you cool for a fraction of the cost of an outdated system, which means you run it less than a normal system and stay cooler than ever before.
In recent years, central air has become much more advanced:
- Central air systems can divide your home into sections that are set to different temperatures
- Some systems can detect when rooms are unoccupied, and will only cool the house when people are home
- Modern air conditioners are much quieter than older systems, meaning that you can maintain a pleasant environment in your home
- 2-stage cooling mechanisms allow you to keep your home cooler and less humid without having to turn your system on and off frequently — saving you energy
There is no better time than right now to consider updating your central air conditioner. Contact our professionals here JK Mechanical today to learn more about how you could benefit from a new air conditioning system.
We Carry Carrier Products
JK Mechanical is a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer. This allows us to offer customizable, affordable, and energy-efficient solutions that are tailored to your family. We are confident that the products we carry are all of the highest quality — because they come from the world’s first air conditioning company.
In 1902, Willis Carrier invented the world’s first air conditioner. His device, called the Apparatus for Treating Air, was designed for a printing company in order to keep the print from sliding off of magazine pages during the humid summer. Other companies saw how effective Carrier’s product was, so Carrier established the Carrier Air Conditioning Company of America to sell his product to a broader market.
Though today’s air conditioners look and work differently from the first one that Willis Carrier designed over 100 years ago, they are governed by the same basic principles. Our partners at Carrier have been perfecting air conditioning technology for over a century, and we are proud to carry their products.
