What you need to know about air conditioning and its installation.
Heading into an Adelaide summer, you may be thinking about adding a new air conditioning unit to your home to make sure you are comfortable during the hottest months of the year. If you’re not quite sure what exactly you need to know about the different units available and their installation process, there are a few things to think about.
First of all, when adding a wall split system or ducted air unit to a particular space, the room size affects the efficiency of the system. By measuring the square meters of different rooms, you can determine what kind of cooling unit suits the layout of the home. This could mean the surface area of just one living space or the combined space of the entire building. Both options involve accurately measuring your home to find which kind of unit cools the given space efficiently.
The height of a room also affects cooling potential, so ideally, by finding out the entire space of your home, you and the company installing your air conditioner will be able to work out the best product and system for your home and budget.
Size also contributes to the overall efficiency of a unit. An efficient system can save you money on energy bills, and also cool an area at a more rapid pace. This energy efficiency guarantee in an air conditioning system may cost more upfront, but it’s important to think about the potential money that could be saved in bills. The way your system is maintained also contributes to this efficiency. Regular filter changes and upkeep will ensure that your system is running at its best possible output. So before you decide which system to go with, have a look at the more energy efficient options, and consider how this may save you money (and cool your home better) in the long run!
Being proactive in organising an air conditioning installation could be beneficial for your budget. The closer to summer it gets, the higher demand there is for air conditioning installation in Adelaide. Therefore if it gets too close to the warmer months, and you are organising installation, it may be significantly harder to find someone available or end up being much more expensive. By looking into this option in the months where it may not be a necessity, you may be able to save yourself some money and avoid the stress of racing against the clock!
Another thing to consider is placement. It is vital to have thought about where you are going to put the unit before getting it installed. The units need to be high to spread the air around the room with ease, and also should be far away from anything that is prone to collecting dust. As some units can be quite bulky, they should be placed somewhere out of the way, yet with a central position in the area that most needs cooling.
These are just a few things anyone who is looking to install an air conditioner into their home should think about!
