Types of Air Conditioners for Modular Homes

There are four fundamental sorts of air conditioning systems that can be installed in a modular home, and each of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. Here are the choices:

Types of Air Conditioners for Modular Homes

1)Package – A “package unit” places everything in one major box and is the most prominent air conditioning system for modular houses. It is basically a window air conditioning system on steroids, with two larges pipes (return and supply) connected to it rather than a front grille. Since living space is constrained in many modular homes, the upside of a package system is that it doesn’t require a lot of storage room space. Likewise, package air conditioning systems are less demanding and less expensive to change out, when the time comes, than a central air conditioning system.

2)Central – If your modular house as of now has an interior furnace, at that point it might be wise to get a central air conditioning system, which has a different indoor unit (air handler) and outside unit (condenser). Something else, a package or ductless framework would be a superior decision. Central air conditioning systems, which are additionally called split systems, offer more brands and energy efficiency levels to look over. Finding the air handler inside the home and close to the middle additionally makes it less demanding to accomplish adjusted air circulation to all rooms.

3)Ductless – Called a “mini split” usually by contractors, these units use a single condenser and one to three air small air handlers that mount on the wall surface of each room served, distending just a couple of inches from the wall and controlled by a handheld remote. They are peaceful and, on the grounds that there is no pipe establishment, are less demanding to retrofit into a modular home with no current conduits than a package or central system. Be that as it may, the units themselves are all the more expensive.

4)Window – Also called “wall shakers,” and for a justifiable reason, this is the most effortless and least expensive approach to cool a modular home. Be that as it may, window air conditioning systems are not required to meet high standards of energy efficiency like different sorts of systems, so they are costlier to work. Likewise, most window units don’t give warmth, they are essentially noisier than their alternates, and the absence of a proper air conditioning system depreciates your home value when it’s a great opportunity to sell.

Be that as it may, on the off chance that you do choose to run with window units, make certain to take after the maker’s guidelines in favor of the bigger 120-volt air conditioning systems—the ones that connect to a customary 3-opening wall outlet and are evaluated at 10,000 BTU or more. It will state “USE ON SINGLE OUTLET CIRCUIT ONLY,” implying that the unit draws so much amperage that it needs its own particular separate wiring, repository, and electrical switch in the electric board. Running the air conditioning system from a regular wall repository is dangerous and will overheat the wiring, stumbling the electrical switch at whatever point extra lights or appliances are used on the same circuit.
