Long Island Central Air Q & A

Long Island Central Air Q & A

Summer is in full swing on Long Island and it is HOT.  Are you considering central air installation?  Of course you are!

Central air is a convenient air conditioner alternative that works to bring luxury and comfort to residential and commercial spaces.  The following are some frequently asked questions we often receive from our Long Island community.  We thought sharing some of these ideas here would prove helpful for anyone considering the switch to central air.

Q: What is central air?

A: Central air is, as its name suggests, a centralized unit that dehumidifies and cools air before circulating it throughout a home, office, or building.  Many central air units also provide heat, making them dual air systems.

Q: What are the benefits of central air?

A: Central air provides an excellent alternative to traditional air conditioning units.  Here’s why:

  • Silent operation: The bulk of central air units are located outside the building in which they are cooling and heating.  Their silence makes them especially convenient for office spaces, libraries, schools, hospitals, or homes.
  • No bulky installation process: Traditional air conditioning units must be carried to and from storage spaces at the beginning and end of each summer season.  Once installed, these units block beautiful summer window views preventing healthy, natural light from entering your home or business.
  • Climate Control: Automatic timers and temperature gages allow home and business owners to control when their central air unit increases or decreases temperature thus saving money in the long run.

Q: Are rebates available?

A: Yes!  Long Islanders can receive a $300 federal tax credit on central air installations.  Additionally, Rebmann provides up to $1000 in rebates on all new air conditioner systems.  That’s a savings of up to $1300 on central air.

Is a Split System Air Conditioner Right for Me?

Is a Split System Air Conditioner Right for Me?

At Rebmann we find that many of our customers have questions surrounding possible split system upgrades.  As a Long Island family-owned business for three generations, we’ve picked up a few heating and air conditioning tips along the way.  Here, we’ll try to clarify some things regarding split systems and whether or not one might be right for your home or business.

Q: What is the difference between a split system and a mini split system?

A: First off, know that the technicians at Rebmann are certified split and mini split system installers, so regardless of your decision, we can help.

As the name suggests mini split systems are just that—smaller versions of their larger split system counterparts.  Generally speaking however, mini splits are more technologically advanced.  They are easier to install and have a uniquely sleek style.

Q: What type of home or business accommodates split systems?

A: We install split and mini split systems in a variety of residential and commercial locations across both the north and south shores of Long Island.  Whether or not a split system is best for you truly depends upon personal preference.  Because of their ultra-quiet operation, split system installations are popular in office spaces, hotels, hospitals, libraries, and schools.

Q: What are the benefits of installing a split system?

A: Let’s begin by saying what split systems are not.  They are not clunky traditional air conditioning units that need to be dug up each summer, carried, and installed only to block your window view.

Split systems stay put all year.  These space efficient units work year-round to quietly provide your home or business with both cool and warm air.  A wise investment, split systems work to reduce energy costs and save you money in the long run.

Please contact a professional at Rebmann if you have additional questions regarding split or mini split systems for your Long Island home or business.
