Which Air Conditioner System Is Best?


Living in Quebec and struggling with the summer heat? Don't worry, there are many air conditioning systems to counter the hot and humid days. At Dettson, we specialize in comfort and offer a range of air conditioners to meet your residential and commercial needs. Whether you are looking for a central air conditioner, an inverter technology unit, or a portable air conditioner, we have the perfect solution for you!

Here is an overview of the different types of air conditioners and the situations they are best suited for in Quebec:

1. Central Air Conditioner: Efficiency and Silence For your home or office, a central air conditioner is generally considered the most efficient and quiet. It has a high cooling capacity and maintains a constant and pleasant temperature.

How It Works A central system consists of two separate units: the condenser and the evaporator. The condenser, located outside, houses the compressor, condensation coils, and the condensation fan. Its outdoor location minimizes indoor noise. The evaporator is usually paired with your furnace, where the evaporation coils and the expansion valve are located.

2. Inverter Technology Air Conditioner: Discreet and Versatile An inverter technology unit is easy to install, quiet, and perfect for most rooms. They are often found in hotels and apartments. Unlike window air conditioners, inverters maintain a stable temperature by continuously modulating the fan speed. Like the central system, the condensation unit (compressor, condenser, and fan) is located outside, while the indoor unit controls the distribution and freshness of the air.

Advantages of the Inverter in Quebec Particularly discreet and requiring no window space, the inverter air conditioner is an interesting solution for regions with more moderate temperatures like Quebec. It efficiently cools a given room without wasting energy on the rest of the house.

3. Portable Air Conditioner: Mobility and Occasional Use If you live in Quebec and need occasional cooling, a portable air conditioner is an interesting option. Versatile, it can be moved from room to room and easily stored away out of season. Simply plug it into an electrical outlet and secure the exhaust hose to the outside to enjoy fresh air.

Who Is the Portable Air Conditioner For? Portable air conditioners are well-suited for small spaces and can be used as a supplement to another system. Although they are noisier than other options, they represent an affordable solution to counter intense heat episodes in Quebec.
