Why AC Installation Is a Great Investment

It’s not your imagination. Summers really are getting hotter here in the Pacific Northwest. If you don’t already have a central air conditioning system installed in your home, now is a great time to invest in one. After all, the heat isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

If you have been researching air conditioning installation in Puyallup, WA, give our team a call. We can offer an in-home assessment and go over your different air conditioning options. Until then, you can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of having an air conditioner installed in your home.


If you are relying on portable air conditioners or window units for your home cooling, you may be left with much to desire. You cannot get consistent cooling throughout your house with smaller air conditioning units. When you have a central air conditioner, your entire home gets cooled down equally. 

Plus, when the temperature begins to rise too much, your thermostat can signal for a cooling cycle to begin again so that your home stays consistently cool around the clock. You can set it and forget it without having to move units around your home or change the settings manually


Since a central air conditioner is more effective, you will also enjoy elevated comfort. You can stay cooler inside, no matter how hot it is outside. Or if you’re used to moving a portable air conditioner around your home as you complete different tasks in different rooms, you won’t have to worry about that anymore.

Plus, you can select settings for when you are away from home. Instead of leaving a smaller unit on all day and hoping for your home to still be comfortable when you get back at the end of the day, you can know that your central air conditioner is keeping your home comfortable. If you prefer to increase the temperature while you’re away, you can do that too. 

Energy Efficiency

If energy costs are a concern, there are a lot of ways that you can maximize a central air conditioner. And just because you have a whole house cooling unit, that doesn’t mean your energy bills have to be super high. You can set the thermostat higher during the day while you’re away at work and then have the temperature automatically lower back down again an hour or so before you are due to arrive home. You can also follow the US Department of Energy’s recommendation of setting your thermostat no lower than 78° in the summer for cooling. 


Plus central air conditioners have a much longer lifespan. Sure, they are more expensive than a window unit or a portable air conditioner, but they also last for 15 years. By the time you invest in several of the smaller units, you would be close to spending the same amount on a larger central air conditioner that can produce much better results.
