All you Need to Know about your A/C Equipment!

Air Conditioners Explained.

By Dave Henshaw, VP of Operations, and Katie Clarke, Marketing Associate

It sure is getting hot and humid out and if you are reading this, you’re likely looking for answers about your A/C unit. In this post, I’ll go over some different types of A/C units available, signs to upgrade your A/C and why leasing your A/C equipment makes sense.


There are two main types of A/C Units available for leasing. Central A/C Units and Ductless Split A/C Systems.

Central A/C Units

Central A/C Units use a refrigeration technology to cool your entire home. It is partnered with your furnace, as the ducts are used to distribute hot and cold air interchangeably. Choosing the proper size for your home is important, and our contracted partners can assist you with this!

Advantages to a Central A/C Unit include: they cool your entire home with one unit; they use air filters (which are easily replaceable for cleaner air), and they support the use of a programmable thermostat.

Cons of a Central A/C Unit include: they are expensive upfront, however, with Grand HVAC Leasing, you don’t have to worry about any upfront costs!

Ductless Split Systems

Alternatively, Ductless Split Systems or Mini Splits also cool your home by extracting humidity from the air and using a refrigeration technology. Ductless Split Systems are common in homes with a boiler and no ductwork, or older homes and home add-ons.

Advantages to a Ductless Split System include: zoned cooling without closing vents; no ductwork required  for the unit and versatile installation.

Cons of a Ductless Split System include: expensive upfront cost; they are not as efficient at cooling large spaces; and the units are visible inside the home and take up wall space.

Given you’ve come this far, you may also be reading this because it’s time to replace your current unit!


There are multiple ways to know your unit is past its prime.

  1. Your unit is over 10 years old.
  2. You’ve already paid for several repairs; it’s time to let it go.
  3. It’s making weird noises that you can’t identify – time for an inspection at least!
  4. Your energy bills are increasing, ouch.
  5. Do you feel like your A/C just isn’t working like it used to?
  6. Older refrigerant is no longer available so some repairs are not possible
  7. Newer refrigerant is environmentally friendly! Great, let’s upgrade!
