  • Central Air Conditioning- Of the different types of air conditioning systems, central air conditioning is the most common due to its ability to cool larger spaces efficiently. In this system, a network of ducts and vents carries cooled air throughout the building, then directs it back to the cooling unit to be cooled again when it warms up. We at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating are highly familiar with these systems and can make sure yours is functioning correctly in no time.
  • Ductless, Mini-Split Systems – Another popular choice when it comes to air conditioning systems is ductless, mini-split air conditioning models. These function similarly to central air conditioning, using an outdoor compressor and an indoor handling unit. However, as the “mini” part of the name suggests, these indoor units are much smaller, and are designed to cool smaller areas. In most ductless, mini-split systems, each outdoor unit can be paired with up to four indoor units, making them a great choice for cooling areas that weren’t a part of the original structure.
  • Window Air Conditioner- Similar to ductless, mini-split systems, window air conditioners are designed to cool smaller areas. These air conditioning systems are mounted to the window of a room and push warm air out the back while blowing cool air out the front and into the space.

We at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating hope that this information has been helpful. If you are having any issues with your air conditioning system, no matter what kind, we encourage you to give us a call.
