What to Consider Before Starting a Refrigerated AC Conversion

January 4, 2020

There are plenty of factors that go into deciding on a refrigerated AC conversion. Many homeowners weigh the pros and cons before making this decision. In all actuality, making an educated decision is the best way to go. When it comes to home improvements weighing all the options is the only way to go.

Consider the Cost

A refrigerated AC conversion is a home improvement project that comes with upfront costs. It is true, a refrigerated unit can cost considerably more than a swamp cooler. However, many homeowners feel the cost is well justified. A refrigerated AC is actually a big upgrade from the average evaporative cooler. In El Paso on hot humid days an evaporative cooler simply doesn’t cool down the home. These units use air pulled into the home that passes through wet AC pads to cool down the home. When the weather is muggy outside the air is simply not cooled down before coming into the home. Not only that, when a family has allergy suffers, a refrigerated AC conversion can feel like a dream. This is because refrigerated air conditioning does not use outside air to cool the home. A refrigerated AC unit also comes with a digital thermostat. This gives homeowners the ability to ability to set the temperature in the home and let the AC do the rest. Some units come with smart home features that allow users to control temperatures from a phone or device.

Consider the Remodeling

A refrigerated AC conversion may require a bit of remodeling. While this is a setback for some households, or even something that deters others from making the switch, it isn’t normally that extensive. In most cases a home’s current ductwork can sustain the refrigerated AC. In other cases making the switch is not as costly as some may imagine. An AC unit on the side of the house rather than the roof can also be a plus for homeowners looking to conduct their own maintenance.
