5 factors to consider before air conditioning installation.
Getting an air conditioner installed in your home is a great idea as it can help you regulate the temperature during the hotter months; however, before finalising your decision, you should consider the following points.
Types of Air Conditioners
Before investing in an air conditioner, you should know and understand your requirements. There are many different types of air conditioners that have different features and requirements depending on what you are looking for. Air conditioners come in all different forms, you can have a wall hung split or multi head split system, a ducted air conditioner, a central air conditioner or even a floor mounted air conditioner. Identifying what you want to achieve with an air conditioner will help you narrow down your search and settle on the best solution for you.
You should choose an air conditioner depending on the size of your room. An air conditioner should have the right cooling capacity to function properly within your space. As a rule of thumb, an air conditioner generally needs 20 Btu for every square foot of living space. You should also consider ceiling hight, the size of your windows and doorways. This will help you identify the cooling power your space already has.
Tonnage is defined as an air conditioner’s cooling capacity. Having an air conditioner with less tonnage in a bigger room will result in more electricity consumption. On top of that, the air conditioner with less tonnage will struggle to cool down a bigger space properly. You should calculate the tonnage suitable for your home before finalising your decision.
Air conditioners are notorious for consuming a lot of power, so power consumption should be on your list of things to consider when choosing an air conditioner. It’s never a good idea to purchase a low-cost air conditioner that requires more power to work. This increases your electricity usage and potential maintenance costs too.
Every air conditioner makes noise when working, so having an idea of how that would impact your everyday life is important. Will it disturb you while working or sleeping? If your air conditioner is loud, to begin with, then chances are the amount of noise will only increase with time.
