I’ve finally decided to supply in and install a central cooling plan into my home. Living in the northeastern part of the country, air conditioning isn’t a necessity. While we get some extremely tepid and humid weather, the summer time season simply doesn’t last all that long. Periodically, the whole summer time is cold and wet, and I consider running the heater. I’ve resisted investing in air conditioning, because of the limited usage and the price of purchase and upgrade. My family, however, has been begging for central cooling for many years. They aren’t satisfied with box fans and window a/cs. They tell me that a central cooling plan provides all sorts benefits, way beyond easy temperature control. They’ve promised me that the home will be cleaner, healthier and more secure because of the shut and locked windows. There’ll be less dust, pollen, bugs, noise, and exhaust fumes. Plus, the a/c will filter the air, trapping airborne contaminants such as mold spores and bacteria. Apparently, because of versatile speed compressors, modern a/cs are much better at handling excess humidity and create a more evenly distributed temperature. Even with all these promises, I’ve hesitated to spend the money on central cooling. Despite the SEER ratings of top-of-the-line a/cs, I think my summer time electric bill will go up considerably. I have finally agreed to make the upgrade because of a deal provided by my local Heating and Air Conditioning company. As a member of their maintenance club, I get a discount on the purchase price and labor for upgrade. Adding in a manufacturer’s rebate, the central cooling plan is affordable.
