That sounds like a good idea, right?

Switching to Central Air Conditioning

Using individual ACs to cool every room in your house is inefficient, so you might want to consider switching to a central AC. Here are a few reasons why you should make the switch:

Air Quality

Central air conditioners have filters that eliminate dust, pollen, and other allergens from your environment, thereby improving your respiratory health and prevent you from falling sick. By maintaining a regulated environment, central air conditioning can reduce the spread of germs and viruses. That said, the purpose of these filters is actually to protect the air conditioners themselves and they aren’t designed to comprehensively protect your indoor air quality, but you can add a more powerful whole-home air filtration system to your central air conditioning system, whereas you cannot do this with a portable or window unit. 


Maintaining your home’s indoor temperature as a whole is more efficient than setting every room’s temperature individually. Additionally, you don’t have to feel the displeasure of stepping from an air-conditioned room to the warmer summer room temperatures. It is also cheaper to install as you need to run a central AC as compared to running 3 individual units.

Prevents Mold

Air conditioners are great for keeping mold away by circulating clean and fresh air. Additionally, ACs can help dry up the environment in humid conditions and remove moisture from the air in the home. This can drive down maintenance costs for any area with central air conditioning. You might also want to look into the addition of a whole-house dehumidifier as well. 

Improved Mood

After coming home from the sweltering heat, being in a colder environment can help to boost your mood. On warmer nights, ACs can help you fall asleep better. Research by Health Central indicates that the best way to set up your AC for the best sleep is to have the temperature set to drop overnight.

Reduced Noise Levels

One of the biggest perks of a central AC is the low noise level it generates. Installing a central AC and rather than multiple window units for lower noise levels.

Longer Lifespan

As long as the system is installed properly by a trained professional (that’s where we come in) it should last for a good long while. Properly installed and well-maintained central AC units can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced.
