In Southwest cities like El Paso, the allure of evaporated air dominated the residential market for years. As time progressed, though, refrigerated air has become the king of air conditioning. Central air systems allow your home to be cooled much more precisely, without annoyances like humidity and open windows. EP Temp Line offers refrigerated air conversions using the industry’s most efficient units. If you want control over your home’s air, we can help you convert to refrigerated air. 

Evaporative Cooler vs Refrigerated AC

Evaporative coolers and refrigerated AC systems work with completely various concepts. An evaporative cooler utilizes water-soaked pads and a fan to generate cooled air from the outdoors, while an AC unit utilizes pressurized coolant to cool the air. AC provides the very same temperature level despite outside weather, while the temperature level of air evaporative coolers provide depends upon the temperature level and outdoor air humidity. The only part of an evaporative cooler system you can utilize with the central air conditioning conditioner is the ductwork if your evaporative cooler blows air through the ducts.

With summertimes getting hotter in El Paso, TX, a growing number of individuals are updating to refrigerated HVAC. There are lots of things to think about with transforming to refrigerated air. The EP Temp Line group of certified HVAC specialists can assist you through the procedure and help you to make the ideal choice that best fits your house cooling requirements. Allow the specialists at EP Temp Line to provide you with cooling options that will satisfy your requirements and budget plan.

Other Factors You Should Consider Prior to Converting

There are lots of factors to think about when choosing a refrigerated air unit for your home.  None is more important than the size of the central air conditioning system. For the correct performance of your HVAC system in an El Paso house, you have to size the central air conditioning system to your house square footage and the cooling required based upon the cooler's output and not its physical measurements. Setting up the appropriate size is important to keep your house cool and comfy, however too big a system makes cooling your house harder considering that the system cycles on and off too rapidly to lower the humidity in the house.

The square footage in your house is not the only aspect that matters when picking a central air conditioning system. Think about other variables that might make your house harder or simpler to cool. A greatly shaded house might need 10 percent less energy to cool. On the other hand, more windows, little shade, and a bright environment might have the opposite result. If a cooking area is utilized routinely for cooking, then it can likewise considerably increase the energy required for cooling.

Refrigerated Air Conversions | The Process

Whenever we get questions about refrigerated air conversions, we notice that customers almost always expect it to be a massive undertaking. The truth is, with an experienced team, refrigerated air conversions can be relatively easy and quick. If your current duct system is installed correctly for your home, the process is as simple as replacing your evaporated air system for the central air system. In this case, the conversion process can be finished in as little as a few hours. 

When we come to your home or business, we’ll first inspect the ductwork and supporting infrastructure. If your ductwork needs modification or replacing, our in-house fabrication team can quickly produce the necessary ductwork to support your refrigerated air system. Once the ductwork is finished, it’s as simple as switching out your swamp cooler for the central air system and calibrating your thermostat accordingly. 

How Much Do Refrigerated Air Conversions Cost?

Want to convert to refrigerated air? There are quite a few factors that determine the price of your refrigerated air conversion. Finding the perfect system for each home or business is a fine science to maximize efficiency and comfort. Most of the cost is broken down by labor and the type of AC unit used. 

Refrigerated air systems are rated by the amount of air they can cool (typically in the tons) and by how efficient they are. The average home size in El Paso is anywhere from 2,000 to 2,500 square feet, meaning a 4-ton unit would probably be the best. In some cases, a split system using two units are needed to adequately cool the home, though this is usually just for larger homes. 

In terms of efficiency, all refrigerated air systems are measured by a metric called the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER for short. The ratio is a simple metric for how efficient the system is at producing cool air. An inefficient system may still produce cool air, but it will use much more energy than is necessary, raising your energy bill. In general, units with higher SEER ratings are more expensive.

Our partner American Standard produces central air systems with stellar SEER ratings, which we confidently recommend for our clients. SEER ratings and unit size aren’t the only factors at play; to maximize your refrigerated air, your ductwork will have to be optimal as well. 

As stated above, if you currently have good ductwork in your house, the procedure goes a lot more rapidly. The cost of a central air conditioning conditioner typically includes the installation.  Self-installations void all the service warranties for the unit. Due to EPA policies relating to coolant handling, a certified HVAC professional should upgrade your system.
