5 Reasons to Install Air Conditioning Before Summer
It’s a common misconception that you can’t use air conditioning in the Winter, and a lot of people wouldn’t even think about getting it installed until the Summer. In reality, air conditioning provides an effective heating and cooling system for your property, and there are many benefits to getting it installed before the heat of Summer. Here are just 5 of them.
1. Year-round heating and cooling
Air conditioning isn’t just for blasting out cold air when it’s hot – you can use it as a heating and cooling system, regulating the temperature in your property throughout the year. A heat pump is essentially an air conditioning system that can reverse its function, so it keeps your property warm in the Winter and cool in the Summer.

2. Cut costs on your heating bill
You might not know that air conditioning is actually a more cost-effective solution than many modern heating systems. An AC unit costs less to run and is more energy-efficient than central heating, so you could save a lot of money on your heating bill! However, you should bear in mind that your savings will depend on a number of factors, including how often you use your AC unit.
3. Keep the air fresh & clean
With the majority of people spending more time indoors over the colder months, dust particles, pollutants and germs can build up in the air and it can feel quite stuffy. An AC system can effectively filter these out to keep the air fresh and breathable. It’s important to maintain good indoor air quality to support a healthy lifestyle, and by having an air filtration system in place, you can reduce the chances of diseases or viruses spreading through airborne germs.
4. Beat the Summer rush
One of the key reasons for installing air conditioning early in the year is that you can beat the Summer rush. The graph below shows Google Searches for ‘air conditioning’ in the UK in 2020. As you can see, they increased massively in July and August. Between 9th and 15th August, there were 100 searches!
It’s quicker and potentially cheaper to install air conditioning in your home or office when the demand for air conditioning units is lower. It also means there is no pressure to rush into a decision and you can take your time deciding on the right air conditioning solution for you.
5. Create a comfortable space to live & work
If you are working from home, you might now recognise the importance of a good heating and cooling system in your house. Not only will air conditioning make your home office more comfortable to work in, but it will also improve productivity and efficiency. Plus, if you have a conservatory, installing an AC unit in there will allow you to use it throughout the year and not just when it’s the right temperature!
In commercial buildings and offices, employee productivity will improve if people are the right temperature. If it’s too cold, there’ll be complaints and illness, but if it’s too hot, they will start to feel tired. Air conditioning will help you to strike the right balance and create a comfortable workspace.
To summarise, getting air conditioning installed before Summer is a good idea because it provides you with a heating and cooling system that controls the temperature of your living or working space all year round, cuts costs on your heating bill and helps keep the air fresh, clean and comfortable.
