There are many disadvantages and problems that can come from having a central air conditioning system.
The first obstacle you will face is the purchasing of a central air conditioner. These air conditioners are sold for thousands of dollars, many people cannot afford to get one. The next obstacle is installing the central air conditioner. This is also a huge cost that comes after the huge cost of purchasing the air conditioner. These two factors combined make having a central air conditioner not an option for many HVAC customers. Another disadvantage of having a central air conditioner is knowing where to put it. Smaller a/c units like mini air conditioners and window air conditioners have no problem finding a place in your home, but central air conditioners need a special space either beside the home, or occasionally on the roof. Since many city homes do not have a good place to install a large a/c unit, nor can they put it on their roof, they avoid these HVAC units altogether. One final disadvantage to having a central air conditioner is the cost of upkeep. Hiring an HVAC technician to come every so many months to do an inspection can be costly, and if your a/c unit has a problem or needs a new part, the cost of HVAC repair for a central air conditioner can be very costly. If you don’t believe me, visit your local heating and cooling business and check out the costs of HVAC equipment and then you will be convinced. If you were thinking about getting a central air conditioner, consider the disadvantages first.
