When To Replace Vs. Repair Your A/C Unit
At times, it can be difficult for homeowners to decide if their A/C system needs to be replaced or simply repaired. While taking into consideration the overall expenses associated with repairs, in the long run, we at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating encourage homeowners to think about some other factors on whether it’s time for a new A/C:
- Does your home feel cool enough?
- Is there adequate air flow?
- Do you notice water leakage in or around the unit?
- Does your unit make unusual sounds?
- Are there warm “zones” in your home?
- Does your AC take longer to cool your home

4 Types of Central Air Conditioning Systems
THE SPLIT SYSTEM
Split systems are the most common type of central AC systems in the U.S. It has the term “split” because it uses components both outside and inside. The inside component is called an air handler; it holds the blower and evaporator coil. The outside component is actually what the majority of people consider to be the “air conditioning unit” itself. If you have a furnace for central heating, you probably have this split system.
PACKAGED AIR CONDITIONERS
Packaged air conditioners combine electric air conditioning and a heat pump. These typically rest on the roof or just outside the home or commercial building. They are often the choice for commercial applications because of their small footprint and installation flexibility.
For people looking to keep their home cool without a duct system, ductless systems are great options. While the other types of systems utilize ductwork to circulate the cool air coming from the AC, the ductless system doesn’t. Ductless mini-split systems use an outdoor AC unit or heat pump, which runs to the air handling units in the different parts of the house.
THE HEAT PUMP
Heat pumps are a different kind of split system. Instead of an AC and a furnace, the heat pump works for both HVAC seasons, giving the homeowner heat during the winter and cool air during the summer. Similar to the split system, heat pumps have their air handler inside, and the actual heat pump case sitting outside, looking very much like an AC unit.
