Modern modular homes make use of efficient cooling methods to keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer. If you do not have an air conditioning system installed in your modular home, it will be a smart move for you to install one. Below are some of the most popular cooling options available for modular homes.
Centralized AC Units
Centralized air conditioning units for modular homes consist of an outdoor fan unit and an indoor compressor unit. This compressor pumps the warm air out of the house and pups in cool compressed air. These units make use of ducts that are located either above the ceiling or below the crawl space to distribute the air throughout the prefab tiny house.
Window AC Units
Window ACs can be a great option to cool rooms of a modular home. This unit can be slid into the opening of a window and can be plugged into a wall outlet in the inside of the house. It will not be easy to find a window AC unit that fits exactly to the window of your home. So, you will need to find extra panels to cover the extra space.
Portable AC Units
These are large tower units, which work like the wall units and can be used to cool large area. These units will also need a ventilating system connected to the outside of the home, but the advantage of using this system is that the vent fits easily to any type of window opening. These units can be an efficient option to cool large rooms.
Wall AC Units
These air conditioners are similar to the window air conditioning units but can be directly installed to the wall of the modular home. These units are permanent installations and you will need to cut into the wall of the home to install these units. These units can be a great option to cool smaller areas but the only downside is that the option is more expensive when compared to the window AC units.
Ductless AC Units
These units are mounted on wall tops near the ceiling and need a small vent to the outside of the home to blow out the warm air from inside. Installing these units can be an efficient and space saving option to cool small rooms, as it will need only a small addition on the outside. Their cooling capacity is ideal for small and medium modular homes.
