Split System Air Conditioners have an outdoor section and an indoor section.The outdoor section features the compressor and fan, but it uses the indoor sections (such as a furnace or air handler) to distribute cool air.
Single Package Air Conditioners features all of the components of a split system but in a single outdoors section. Simply put, the blower is housed with the air conditioning components.
The structure of your home is key to selecting the proper air conditioner. For example, split system units are commonly used in the Midwest because most homes feature basements with gas furnaces. Single packaged units are more common in the southeast region where homes may have a crawl space instead of a basement – making the single packaged unit more space efficient.

Your air conditioning system will be working overtime in the Florida heatwave this summer – follow Alohaac tips to ensure your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) is working at its best:
1. Don’t let your HVAC work more than is necessary. And don’t let your office get too hot before turning it on. It’s key to regulate your temperature so as not to stress your unit. Keep doors and windows closed when your AC is turned on, and keep shades and curtains drawn on very hot days. Avoid having direct sunlight streaming in through doors and windows. As much as possible, don’t operate other heat-generating appliances in the daytime when your AC is going to be working.
2. Replace your air filters on a regular basis. Do this at least once every 3 months. Experts estimate that you can reduce your energy cost by as much as 10% by keeping up on this task. And the cleaner air will benefit your staff’s health as well. Air conditioning energy assessments are often undervalued!
3. Keep your thermostat constant. Changing your thermostat’s setting constantly can result in inefficiency. If you wish you can increase the temperature by a few degrees in the day time while you are away. When in cooling mode, switch on your AC fan to prevent hot or cold pockets from forming. This can also help prevent your condenser from icing up.
4. Keep your outside unit free of dust and dirt. Clear plants and other items from around its perimeter for at least 12-18 inches. Ensure also that indoor vents remain unobstructed to keep air circulation going for industrial air conditioning, this is so important.
5. Schedule regular tune-ups Have a reliable HVAC technician perform maintenance checks on your unit, preferably before the beginning of summer.
Our staff is fully trained in the HVAC techniques required to ensure this process is carried out efficiently. The result is that your air will be fresher, easier to breathe, and less likely to cause allergic reactions.

As businesses become more and more dependent on computers and telecom equipment to keep their critical operations running 24/7, they face a new challenge that often takes them by surprise:
How to keep their server or telecom room cool when the building’s central air conditioning system is inadequate or is otherwise turned off—such as during off hours, weekends and holidays, or during cold-weather months, when the HVAC system is in heating mode.
Adding to the difficulty is a lack of floor space. A relatively new class of self-contained, ceiling-mounted air conditioners can provide a cost-effective, space-saving solution.
• Self-contained, all-in-one units have lower installation costs than mini-splits or precision cooling systems
• No penetration of wall or roof required
• No outside condensing unit to maintain
• Compact size fits easily above drop ceiling, takes up no floor space
