Generally, the choice of modular home air conditioner units will depend on a number of factors even for a modular home. These usually include the size of the area that needs cooling and the amount of heat generated inside that enclosed area amongst many other issues. Here are some of the most common air conditioning systems currently available in the market.
Five AC Types Plus Examples
1) Window AC Units
These are by far the most commonly used air conditioners for single rooms. They are usually fitted in a special slot made in the wall of the room or in a window sill. This conditioner usually has all its components such as the evaporator and cooling coil, compressor, expansion coil or valve, and the condenser enclosed in one box.

This unit can comfortably serve a room of anything between 100 to 300 square feet and has 3 cooling and fan speeds and also includes window extenders.
2) Central Air Conditioning Units
It is the conditioner of choice for large spaces or several small spaces that can be treated as one unit under the central air conditioning system. It usually has a very large compressor and can thus produce hundreds of tons of air conditioning at any given time.

3) Split AC units
In the basic meaning, a Split AC unit usually refers to the splitting of the equipment into two separate components: with one being used for outdoor components while the other is used for indoor components. A good example is having an air conditioner outside the yard and a furnace inside the mobile home.

4) Ductless AC Unit
These are units that operate without the need for ductwork. They have really grown in popularity over the years as they have proven to be a good alternative to the traditional air conditioning units. They are best suited for small mobile homes or apartments which have been built without ducts.

5) Package AC Unit
A package unit usually implies that the cooling and heating system is usually self-contained and available in one outdoor unit. All those users whose ductwork does connect directly to their outdoor unit are considered as having a package unit. The cooled air is usually thrown by a very high capacity blower and flows through the ducts to the various connected rooms
