I thought we should give it a bit more consideration before installing central AC.

From the time we moved into our home, my wife was insisting on having central air conditioning installed.

  • Although she loved the house, she hated there were window air conditioning units.

She didn’t think they worked well enough, and she thought they were an eyesore. I wasn’t sure about their working well enough, but they were a bit of an eyesore. Since we had just bought the house, I wanted to give it a bit more consideration and time before installing central AC. We used the window air conditioning units for the first summer we were in the house, and have central AC installed during the fall. The AC units that were in the house were highly efficient, and they ran quietly. We had remotes for each AC unit, and it was easy to turn off and off when not in the room. Our energy bills were lower in the summer than in the winter. Even with all these factors being known, she still wanted central air conditioning. When the HVAC technician arrived, he looked at the window AC units before we discussed central air conditioning. He was being honest when he said the air conditioning system we had was efficient in cooling and energy use. The AC units had high energy efficiency ratings, and there would be less dust than with central air conditioning. He told us if it were him, he would stay with the window AC units and give it more time before deciding on central AC. My wife rolled her eyes, but we tabled the idea of central AC for at least one more year.
