What to Consider when buying an Air Conditioner
What to consider when buying an Air Conditioning unit
As the weather starts to warm up, many people will be switching off their heating or their indoor electric heaters and will be starting to think about how to keep their homes or work places cool during the spring and summer months.
There are many different types, makes and models of air conditioners so you should choose carefully the type of unit that will best suit the environment that you are looking to keep cool, whether it be your home or your workplace.
An air conditioner could be classed as an essential item to have in your home or workplace, as not only do they keep the air at a comfortable temperature during the summer months, but help to circulate and filter the air to remove airborne pollution. This is extremely important for people who suffer from allergies or asthma. They can also help to reduce the number of heat related deaths in the summertime. Air conditioners are proven to help with sleep. It is so much easier and so much more comfortable to sleep in a room that is cool rather than a warm and stuffy one. Another benefit of owning an air conditioner at home is that the filters within the air conditioner help keep homes free from insects and bugs
Three of the main different types of air conditioners are Portable Air Conditioners, Split Air Conditioners or Central Air Conditioners.
Portable air conditioners are great for domestic properties, they are the more budget friendly type of air conditioner, they are great for small spaces like maybe a bedroom or small living room, they also come fully equipped with wheels, so you can move the air conditioner from room to room very easily.
Split air conditioners are also very popular within a domestic property, they are more energy efficient and will provide complete cooling throughout the room.
Central Air conditioners are more commonly used in a work space as they are the larger type of air conditioner. They are initially quite expensive to purchase but they are a fantastic cooling solution and very energy efficient. The installation of a central air conditioner is quite time consuming and will require a lot of planning and construction. Central Air conditioners are much easier to install in a new building rather than in an older one.
As electricity costs are continuously rising, and concerns about the environment, energy efficiency is a major concern for us all. This is a huge factor to consider when choosing your air conditioner. All modern day air conditioners come with an energy rating. The higher the energy efficiency ratio, the more money you will save on electricity costs and also energy usage.
Everyone has a budget, but sometimes the cheaper models may not be as cost effective as the slightly more expensive ones, which will be more energy efficient therefore saving you money in the long run.
