Have you ever wondered how you could have air conditioning installed in your Mesa mobile home? Would that even work? How?
Well, it can work, and it does so in one of a few different ways.
Option #1: Central AC
The first option is plain old central air conditioning, which works the same way in a mobile home application as it would in any other home. The condenser and compressor sit outside in one unit, with an air handler inside. The blower fan within the air handler forces air through ductwork into the rooms of the mobile home.
There are, however a couple of other details to factor in when it comes to central AC in mobile homes. One is that because the home is mobile but the equipment usually is not, sometimes a special permit from the city or county is required. Secondly, many mobile homes do not have ductwork already installed, precluding this as an option or at least making it very costly and cumbersome.
Option #2: Mini-Split System
For those mobile homes that don’t have existing ductwork, there are other options. One such option is a ductless mini-split system, which works in a manner similar to traditional central air, just with one subtle but significant difference. With a mini-split system, there is still an outdoor unit that contains the condenser and compressor. But, instead of being connected to a central indoor air handler that is connected to ductwork, the outdoor unit is connected directly to a number of satellite units via refrigerant lines.
This satellite units act as air handlers and blowers for each room, allowing for the same convenience as central air, but without having to install any new ducts.
Option #3: Self-Contained AC
A third option for mobile home AC is a self-contained air conditioner. These units have the condenser, compressor and air handler all within the same box, which sits outside. A special kind of flexible ductwork is used to deliver cooled air into the house, as well as exhaust warm air out. These units generally take up the least space and can sometimes be mounted on the roof.
So, if you are considering AC for your mobile home in Mesa or the surrounding area, rest assured that it works quite well, and you have options to choose from. Call Norris Air Inc. today to find out more!
