Completely controlling the climate of your home or office environment is the ideal way to manage your optimum comfort levels. The most effective way of controlling your climate is with an air conditioning unit that suits your needs and lifestyle.
Firstly, bigger is not always better. When choosing the best air conditioning unit for your needs it’s important that you understand exactly how the space your trying to control the temperature of works. Some things to consider early on in your search for the ideal air conditioning unit include:
- What kind of natural light and warmth from the sun does your building and the rooms you’re looking to cool or warm receive? Start with understanding the aspect that your home or intended building faces
- What is your building is made of? Heating or cooling a brick home, for example, is much easier than heating or cooling a weatherboard cottage. Brick is a great natural insulator and will retain an internal temperature very effectively
- What kind of insulation – if any – do you already have installed?
Ducted air conditioning units
This type of air conditioner consists of a compressor unit outside the building which feeds freshly air-conditioned air through a network of vents throughout the building, maintaining the climate in all rooms simultaneously. Although very effective, ducted air conditioning units can become expensive to run. It's best to talk to a licenced installer to see if a ducted air conditioner is best for you.
Split system air conditioners
A split system air conditioner is usually mounted on a wall in a room inside your building and will feed cool air into that room. If the placement is correct, you could effectively feed that air throughout the rest of the building.
Chat with a qualified air conditioner installer to understand which units and which placement is best for your home or office.
