Air Conditioning Systems

Older Homes Are not equipped with central air

In the Philadelphia area, there are countless historical sites the visit and beautiful older homes to live in. These home come equipped with heating systems via boiler systems and radiators. However, these older homes do not come with central air. Often times, many people resort to window units during the summer month. These can work somewhat well as a temporary solution, but they can become a hindrance over long periods of time. They are loud, not very efficient, and can only handle effectively cooling a certain amount of square footage.

If you have been dreading the upcoming summer because of your loud, clunky, and ugly window unit, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Switching to central air can be beneficial when it comes to saving money on energy bills, but the upfront cost of installing duct work can cost thousands of dollars and require a lot of intrusive work in your home such as cutting holes in the ceilings and walls or even lowering your ceilings to accommodate the size of ventilation systems.

Air Conditioning Options for Older Homes

VRF System (Variable Refrigerant Flow)

A VRF system can be installed without duct work, making this option suitable for any home. It utilizes refrigerant for both cooling and heating via a condensing unit which is located outside the home. The unit uses a compressor and refrigerant and “assesses” the temperature of each “zone” or room and adjusts both the compressor’s motor speed and the refrigerant flow accordingly. Because this system is so complex, it takes a skilled HVAC installer to both install and run routine maintenance on the machine. Make sure you are able to find a reputable company that can handle this type of complex technology.

Pros:

Cons:

Ductless Mini Splits

The ductless mini split may be a more suitable option for your home, as it is relatively inexpensive compared to other air conditioning systems. They are small but powerful, and each indoor unit can handle a considerable amount of square footage. They are much quieter and more efficient than a basic window unit.

Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers

Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers

Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers

Both air scrubbers and air purifiers have the sole purpose of cleaning the air in your home or office. Having one of these devices helps clear your space of allergens, particles and other elements you don’t want in your air. But if they both do the “same job” then whats the difference between them? Mainly, its one works much better than the other! Lets find out: Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers? Which is better at cleaning your home’s air?

Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers PA
Are air scrubbers worth the money PA

Air Purifiers

How do Air Purifiers Work?

Air purifiers clean the air by using a filtration system. As air goes through the device the filter catches particles and cleaner air is brought back into the room. Filters will have to be periodically replaced or washed then placed back in the purifier. An air purifier can range from $100-$1,000 and the filters can be $50 or more, which is cheaper than the air scrubber. The question becomes though, if it only cleans the air particles then does that mean it is missing a lot of other things in the air that you want cleaned too? Most likely since a lot of pollutants are not going to be caught by the filtration system! Some people use certain plants to get the same air quality, which questions how worth while the air purifier is. In our opinion, for an active home and to really achieve clean air quality then you’re better off taking the step up to an air scrubber.

Air Scrubbers

How do Air Scrubbers Work?

Air Scrubbers are not a stand alone device, rather it needs to be installed into your HVAC system! This means your whole home, not just a space or one room, is getting cleaner air. It doesn’t act as just a filter, but rather destroys allergens, dust, pollen, pollution, toxins, fumes, bacteria and even molds. Not only do air scrubbers clean the air but also aid in keeping surfaces clean too! Prices on an air scrubber varies from $500-$2000 which isn’t including installation costs. While the price is high, it is a worthy investment for improving your home’s air quality. As for maintenance, air scrubbers should be cleaned about every three months. Concidering these devices are used by NASA, military submarines and even at the Pentagon after 911, there is no doubt air scrubbers work and work incredibly well!

Are Air Scrubbers Worth the Money?

So in the debate of Air Scrubbers VS Air Purifiers, its clear that air scrubbers are the best in drastically improving air quality. But now the question becomes, are air scrubbers worth the money? Because air scrubbers cost quite a bit more than air purifiers – it might be hard to see why getting an air scrubber installed is worth the investment.

Essentially it comes down to need. Do you have a large and busy family? Do you have lots of pets? Does your family suffer from allergies? Do you live in an area with high pollution? Is the air quality in your home poor at best? If these apply to you then an air scrubber is truly worth some consideration. If these did not apply to you then something less extensive may suite you just fine. If you want to learn more about air scrubbers see our page where we go into more details about this powerful device.
