Are you considering installing an air conditioner in your mobile or manufactured home?
If so, what are your options? If you live in Florida, installing a mobile or manufactured home air conditioning unit is an investment worth making. Along with beautiful winters, come hot and humid summers. Saving space can be vitally important. You don’t have to sacrifice space, air quality and comfort to have air conditioning in your home. You have several great options versus a simple window air conditioning unit. What are your best options? The top 3 best air conditioning options for mobile and manufactured homes include the following:
- Ductless Mini-Split Systems: Mini Split Systems like central systems have two main components: An outdoor unit compressor/condenser, and an indoor air handling unit. And a conduit that houses power, refrigerant, suction and drain that connects the indoor and outdoor units. The main advantages with mini split systems are their small size, flexibility in zoning for air conditioning/heating and ease in Air Conditioning/Heating Installation. Also, mini split systems have no ducts as in a central forced air system, thus they can avoid up to 30% in energy loss saving you significant energy costs.
- Packaged Air Conditioning Systems: Packaged Air Conditioning Systems are ideal for Mobile Homes and Manufactured Homes with limited space inside for units and air handlers. Packaged systems contain both the compressor/condenser and air handler all in one unit that is located outside, saving you the valuable space for your living area comfort. Packaged air conditioners often come with electric heating coils or a natural gas furnace. The combination of air conditioner and central heater eliminates the need for a separate furnace inside. Packaged air systems combine all the units of a Mini Split system into one outdoor unit positioned generally on a slab.
- Central Air Conditioning Systems: Central Forced Air Conditioning Systems are the most popular residential air conditioning system available. Central Air Systems use an indoor evaporator to absorb heat and a separate outside unit to disburse the heat. This type of unit is generally cost efficient however requires a furnace inside the mobile home or manufactured home. Most mobile and manufactured homes come with a furnace unit already inside the home. If you are considering adding central air conditioning to your mobile or manufactured home, the deciding factor may be the need for duct work.
