What are the types of air conditioning systems?
RC Cooling Mechanical Services offer one of the best air conditioning system installation solutions in Surrey and Greater London. Our years of experience and technical insights allow us to provide you with the most suitable system for your property. While there are a number of different types of air conditioning systems, the best solution for your property depends on its characteristics, occupants and usage. For instance, if your house does not have ductwork, you could either go for a ductless system or install ductwork before installing the AC system. And, the good news is that we are there to help you determine which system works for your property.
How much does it cost to install a home air conditioning system?
The cost of your AC system largely depends on the house itself, and the kind of system that works for your house. Our engineers can inspect your home and recommend a well-suited, cost effective solution for your specific requirements. If you are interested in installing an air conditioning system for your home, contact our engineers for a free, no-obligation quotation.
What to look for in an air conditioning system?
What exactly do you need to consider before choosing an air conditioning system? Let us consider point by point.
The size of the property – The capacity of your AC should match the space at your home. If the AC is too big, it won’t offer proper dehumidification. If it is too small, your energy cost will go up.
Noise control levels – No one wants an AC unit that drones on endlessly. Check the noise level specifications before you make a final decision.
Energy efficiency – AC systems used to be notorious for eating up your electricity bills. But, the latest models come with energy efficiency ratings. While air conditioning systems with less energy consumption will be more expensive, you will save more in the long run.
Air quality – Invest in an AC system with good filters, to prevent odours, smoke and bacterial growth.
Size of the blower – The blower blows air to the ductwork, which then distributes air throughout your house. You need a blower with a strong air flow to avoid any feelings of suffocation.

How long does it take to install an air condition system?
While it depends on the size of your home, and the type of AC you choose, on average we are able to wrap up installation within 4 to 8 hours. But, it might take longer if your house is large, and the system is more complex.
How long do central AC units last?
The lifespan of a well-maintained air conditioning system tends to be between 10 to 15 years. However, you need to opt for regular checkups and services to maintain the efficiency of your AC system, and enjoy pleasant climate and fresh air at home. If your current AC system is older than 10 years, you should look into replacing it.
