What you should know before buying air conditioning Part 1

What you should know before buying air conditioning Part 1

Before you commit to an air conditioning, there are a few things you should know. There are different types of systems and units out there, and for this reason we would like to share with you useful information to help you make the right decision. Now that summer is fast approaching us, it is a good time to research and buy the best air conditioning for your home or office.

Are you looking for a reverse cycle air con or one that only cools?

Cooling only air conditioners do what the name says; they will only cool the room. If you need an air conditioner that both heats and cools the room, you need a reverse cycle unit. They will cool you down during summer and warm you up during winter. To choose the right reserve cycle unit, talk to a professional. As we mentioned on our previous article, the sizing is important, as well as the location of the house. A professional will help you choose the right unit for you!

Do you have ceiling or wall insulation?

If your home or office doesn’t have any insulation, you are going to need an air conditioning with more capacity. Insulated rooms retain heat during winter and repel it during summer, which means the air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard. The insulation also improves the unit’s energy efficiency.

How to interpret Energy Rating Label

1.- The star rating is quite easy and straightforward; the higher the number of stars, the better the energy performance.

2.- The number displayed, frequently as kilowatt kW/year, is an estimation of the yearly energy consumption of the air conditioner.
