Do You Need Two AC Units in Your Home?

1.5 Story 82298

One of the questions our Tampa air conditioning repair and installation company often gets asked is “Do I really need two AC units to adequately cool my home?” Of course, no one wants to have to purchase more than one unit, BUT there are times when it is recommended – particularly if you live in two-story home. Here’s why… 


Multiple AC Units Make Your Home More Comfortable 

Having temperature is balanced throughout the house is by far one of the most important reasons to invest in two AC units. Generally, one area of your home will be warmer or more difficult to cool than the other, i.e. a two-story home where the upstairs is often warmer because warm air rises.  

This is no longer an issue when you have two air conditioners because: 

(a) you can choose completely different temperatures in different parts of the house and  

(b) it allows for more efficient AC units.  


For instance, if the upstairs is rarely used during the day, you can set the thermostat at a higher temperature than you would if you only had one unit. This enables you to keep the downstairs at a more comfortable temperature without having to use the energy to cool the entire home.  

Make sure your units are running properly all summer long. Call the keep it cool experts at Integrity Home Solutions at 813-328-1550 to install your new air conditioner or multiple zones for your Tampa Bay house! 


Energy Savings 

Multiple zones are good to keep your home running efficiently and keep your energy bills stable! Your energy savings will increase when you have two units. Why? You have more control over how much energy is used to keep a specific part of your home comfortable.  

When your system doesn’t have to work as hard to cool the entire home, you save on energy consumption and costsYou are essentially reducing the square footage that needs to be constantly cooled. By doing so, your monthly utility bill is less and so if your carbon footprint. Mother Earth thanks you (and your wallet too)  


Have a Backup System 

When you live near Tampa, Florida, the last thing you want is an air conditioner to fail – especially in the dead heat of summer. If one AC unit goes down, and you have another cooling zone in your house you have backup.  

By having two AC units in your home, you can rely on one unit to keep you and your family cool while the broken air conditioner is repaired or replaced.

Is having more than one AC Unit or Zone more Expensive? 

 Yes, it will be more expensive to install two AC units instead of one, but the cost difference may not be as much as you think.  

At Integrity Home Solutions, when we recommend an AC system, it is based on the square footage of the area and its cooling needs. When you have two units, the size of each unit needed will be much smaller than if you were purchasing one unit to cool the entire house. Also, the savings you will experience in energy costs will offset the cost of having to purchase and install two units!  

We also offer financing for our AC and plumbing projects to help you get the home projects you need at a price that suits your budget. Learn about our AC financing options and call our team!
