Because most HVAC systems are designed to heat and cool larger homes, finding the right HVAC system for your mobile or manufactured home may be difficult. Luckily, experts at American Air Cares can help you find the right HVAC system that will fit your heating and cooling needs. There are a few options to choose from when looking for the right air conditioner for you.
Packaged HVAC System
A packaged HVAC System offers both cooling and heating options from one unit. This unit is most commonly used for mobile or manufactured homes. Since there is no room for ductwork to accommodate these units, the unit is either installed on top of the flat roof of your home or on the ground outside of the home. It is important to have a professional install and maintain the unit to avoid issues in the future.
Central Air Conditioning System (Split System)
A split system is divided into two components that consist of an indoor and outdoor system. The outdoor system is the condensing unit while the indoor system is the air handler. Like an average sized HVAC system that is designed for larger homes, split systems are designed to heat and cool your home in the same manner. The only difference is a split system uses the indoor unit to absorb heat and force it into the outdoor unit. The outdoor unit releases the heat and cools the refrigerant, then sends the air back into the indoor unit to cool your home.
Ductless Air Conditioning System
Ductless air conditioning systems are also great for mobile homes because they do not require air ducts to be installed into the home. Ductless air conditioners operate the same way as central air conditioners by requiring outdoor and indoor units. With ductless air conditioners, air handlers can be installed in any area of your home and can be controlled by individual thermostats.
