Refrigerated air is a sophisticated system used in residential and commercial buildings to cool interior temperatures. Technological advancements and developments have made refrigerated air systems far more accessible, affordable, and efficient in recent years.
Today, millions of Americans enjoy cool environments in the summers through refrigeration systems while saving the big bucks on energy.
With its 100+ degrees summers, El Paso sees extreme temperatures that an old fashioned evaporative cooling system will struggle to mitigate. A new AC unit possesses greater power than any older evaporative system or swamp cooler showing any wear and tear.
Your home might have an older evaporative cooling system that is already struggling. As a homeowner, you are faced with two choices: either replace the system or repair the old one and hope it gives you a few more years. This, however, can produce any number of complications for you in the near and immediate future. Getting a new air conditioner unit is a smarter choice in the long term. Older systems tend to break down more often, require more maintenance, have older components, make a lot more noise, occupy more space, and use a lot more energy.
Both new evaporative cooling systems and new refrigeration installations utilize modern components and technology that make for more efficient systems.
Benefits of getting a new unit include:
This is a long fought debate. An evaporative cooling system uses evaporation as its main way of cooling the air. A typical window unit, for example, will take the warm air from the outside and cool it with water circulating it inside your building. This means the AC unit depends largely on outside weather, humidity levels, and more. If your home has a traditional swamp cooler and it’s on its last legs, replacing it with a brand new unit might be the way to go and converting to refrigerated air might be the best option.
Refrigerated air will use a similar process but will use a refrigerant that flows through a closed system or refrigeration lines between the inside and outside units. The refrigerant is pumped through the exterior compression coils, it absorbs the heat from the air, and the cooled air is then pushed through the air ducts.
Converting to a refrigerated air system might just be one of the best decisions you ever make! It can save you plenty of headaches in the hot summer months. The conversion itself does not have to be that complicated and most of the time, the existing infrastructure will work just fine with refrigeration. One of our technicians can advise you on how best to convert your system and home to a refrigeration system.
Here at Mechanical Technologies, we carry the best brands in both evaporative cooling and refrigeration systems. These include Master Cool, York, Rudd, Trane, and Carrier. One of our technicians can directly advise you as to what unit might be the best fit. When you’re thinking of converting to refrigeration, an inspection of your current infrastructure and duct system might be necessary to ensure there are adequate duct systems for the necessary flow of air.
In addition to the fact that it simply cools more effectively in uber hot or humid days, there are several other benefits to note:
