Types of Condensing Units
There are basically two types of condensing units: centralized and horizontal. The one with the central condensing unit can be placed anywhere in the house to avoid any difficulties while the units with the heating systems are usually positioned on the ceiling. Centralized unit can be placed on the ground floor, where it will serve as a cold water boiler where you can easily install it at any floor to cut down on the electricity bill. With the low electric bills, you can use this for many purposes.
On the other hand, the horizontal unit with an electric heating system is installed on the lower floors or in areas that are extremely difficult to keep clean. It has to be kept clean all the time because the water on the floor accumulates dirt during the day. This unit is usually used by people who can’t live with the heat and also have the luxury of living on the floor so they can always keep their rooms clean. They will still be able to shower and use the toilet while their shower will be warm and not hot as the main water heater is situated on the floor. The way that the water is pumped in this model is very different as well.
The exterior condensing unit is commonly found on windows. It has a fan that circulates the cool air into the room. There are some exceptions to this rule, as most models require a fan. The air that passes through the fan is then circulated around the home. The amount of time you need to circulate the air depends on the size of the window. If it is big, you might have to close the window more often than if it is small. The central condensing unit is the ideal solution for people who can’t live with the heat from the main water heater but also can’t afford the extra money that the heater consumes each month.
