Carrier Central Air Conditioning System Installation In Essex Massachusetts

Carrier Cooling System Installation Essex Massachusetts

The Edington family had a very unique style home that had no central air in their home, with no ductwork anywhere and was having a hard time getting ductwork into the 1st floor. Since there was no pre-existing cooling equipment, the Edington family had to rely on air conditioners to stay cool.

As the summer was about to roll around the corner, they knew they needed to do something for their at-home cooling needs. They called Townsend Energy to see what could be done and what the options were.

We dispatched Kevin Anderson, one of Townsend Energy’s HVAC experts to the Edington’s home. Kevin assessed that there was no previous cooling system or ductwork in place. He recommended a Carrier Central AC Installation for the Edington family in Essex Massachusetts.

Problem: The Edington family did not have Central AC or ductless for Central AC and relied on window air conditioners for the cooling of their home in Essex, Massacheuttes. As well, with window air conditioners they increase energy bills and can only keep certain rooms cool.

Solution: Townsend Energy installed a Carrier Central AC unit in the attic and installed a ductwork system into the second and first floors. By adding a new Carrier Central AC unit, the Edington family will have an evenly cool house this summer and many more summers to come.
We improved the home’s airflow characteristics with ductwork to ensure the best level of comfort and indoor air quality.

This ductwork is essential to having even cooling distributed throughout the Edington family’s home.

What’s Cheaper, Window AC Units Or Central Air?

Our client in this case study needed to have a Central AC System installed in their home since using window ac units were becoming expensive. All homeowners should know some of the benefits of going with a Central AC System versus having window ac units. These benefits will showcase why having a Central AC System is more economical and energy-efficient.

Central air conditioning will cost a bit more to install than some window AC units. Having Central AC installed is more energy-efficient than several window air conditioners running, quieter than window air conditioners, is hidden from plain sight, and is a cost-worthy investment that will add to the home’s value and keeps costs energy costs low in the long run.

Window ac units would be cheaper if you had 1 or 2 rooms only that need to be cooled, but any more rooms and you’d be left with uneven cooling and potentially high energy costs.

How Long Do Central AC Units Last?

The average life expectancy of a Central AC unit is between 12-15 years but can vary depending on some other factors. If you have too big of a Central AC unit installed for your home, it will constantly have to cycle which will produce wear and tear on the unit, depreciating its life expectancy.

As well as having routine maintenance done will help elongate the life of the Central AC unit. Best to have a trained expert come to see what sized Central AC unit that would best fit your house’s size and cooling needs. One of the best brands to go with is Carrier, especially with a warranty. If you are looking for a Carrier Central AC Installation, in Essex, MA, reach out to Townsend Energy!

Is Air Quality Better With Central Air Cooling Systems Than Window AC Units?

Absolutely yes! With most window AC units, they do not have great filtration systems for the air coming in from outside and all those nasty bits can be pushed into your home. For example, with Carrier, you get filters that work to filter out most airborne particles so you and your family can breathe easier.

How Much Energy Does a Central AC System Use Versus Window AC Units?

Most window AC units can take between 500-1400 watts to run depending on the size of the unit. In this case study, the Edington’s had a few window AC units so you could average out between 1500-4,200 watts of energy being used. With a Central AC System, the average power being used is about 3500 watts for a 1200-2000 square ft home. These can vary based on how cool the home is being kept and how big the home is in size.

Review of Townsend Energy

Vinny came out to my house to clean my boiler. He was on time and thorough with the service. What was really impressive was that he taught me how and where to install CO detectors, talked to me about the service schedule my boiler needs and kindly explained to me why doing it every year is so important. It was a never a lecture or scolding. He educated me in a very kind way. Thanks Vinny!
