Air Conditioning for your Home or Home Office
When planning your home office, it pays to consider your air conditioning options. Trying to concentrate and complete all the things you need to in stuffy, humid environment can be difficult and really knock your productivity down a level. The average home owner might not know a lot of about air conditioning, so the tips below should offer a good place to stare.
Initial and Ongoing Costs
Budget will be of primary concern for most, so it makes sense to first figure out your budget range you need to stick to. An air conditioner will have an initial outlay but also running costs, which will depend on the air conditioner’s output and energy efficiency. These should be stated in the description of the product.
Air Conditioner Types
There are a wide range of air conditioners available for the home and office. Typically the cheapest to buy and run are portable units which are suitable for small rooms and those with limited budgets. For larger rooms, wall mounted units may be more appropriate, as they are likely to have higher outputs. If you wish to cool down multiple rooms, look into a centralised air conditioning system for the whole house . These large systems use heat exchange units which are placed outside, offering true climate control for every room. These types of domestic units are most often found in hotter climates due to their high running costs.
Air Conditioner Efficiency
For cost savings and environmental considerations, it pays to scrutinise the energy efficiency of your next air conditioning system. A higher efficiency unit will draw less electricity than an equivalent unit with lower efficiency, saving you money on electricity bills every month and reducing the impact on the environment. Typically, more modern systems are more efficient than older systems, largely because technology innovations have enabled them to be more efficient. In the UK, the official energy efficiency ratings for consumer electronics range from a G (lowest) to A (highest) rating.
Seek Professional Help
Lastly, if you don’t have the time to conduct thorough research yourself, or you think you’ll need someone to install your system, call a reputable air conditioning engineer to advise you on the best solution. An engineer will be able to fully assess your needs and give you the most appropriate options. Additionally, an engineer will be able to set up your new system for maximum efficiency, leading to less waste and lower electricity bills.
