Anyone who has ever sat through a summer without air conditioning can tell you just how quickly you stop thinking about energy savings and begin thinking about comfort. There are generally several options that you can use to add such comfort to your home, and some are significantly more expensive than others.
When thinking of adding air conditioning, you need to stop and think about a few things. The first and foremost should be how much are you willing to spend to achieve the level of comfort that you want. Shortly after that, will usually follow something along the lines of how much this will set you back on your monthly energy bills.
Once you decide on which way you want to add your air conditioning, then you need to figure out the procedure to use to do it. If you are going to go with central air, then you really should contact a professional. Look for HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) contractors in your area; they can do the job for you and they should guarantee their work.
If you choose a different method of air conditioning (ceiling fans, window units, or evaporative units), you may be able to do the installation work yourself. Check with your local hardware store or outlet; they will be able to provide detailed information on installation.
