There are just a few genuinely hot days in the United Kingdom every year, but on those days, a good domestic air conditioner is something that can really keep your home blissfully cool and comfortable.
Air conditioning not only cools you down, but also enhances the quality of the air you breathe. This has a number of advantages, including better respiratory conditions, electrical equipment performance, and overall health. In addition to these advantages, air conditioners remove toxins and particles from the air, such as pollen and dust mites. To get the most out of your air conditioner, make sure to maintain and service it on a regular basis.
This article is about why and how to pick a high-quality air conditioner.
Domestic Air Conditioning— A Necessity for Everyone!
Today, air conditioning units are not a symbol of luxury anymore; rather it has become a necessity to own one! It is hard to think about needing domestic air conditioning in your home considering the British weather being what it is. But, during summers, a hot, unventilated house can be extremely discomforting— to get a better night’s sleep you really need efficient air conditioning systems to cool down your home.
There are many types of air con systems on the market, apt for different homes and budgets. For many, buying domestic air conditioning can be confusing. We have discussed the different types of air conditioner, how to choose the right air conditioning system for your home and the benefits of an air conditioner for home.
Different Types of Air Conditioner
The main types of domestic air conditioners:
Portable Air Conditioners
Single-unit air conditioners, mono block air conditioners and standalone air conditioners, are all names for a portable air conditioner. These are plugged into a wall outlet and the hose is dangled out of a window or door.
Split Air Conditioners
They are also known as fixed air conditioners. These have an outdoor unit and indoor unit, with the indoor units are the wall mounted units installed inside of an exterior wall ande out thdoor unit installed on the opposite side of the wall or the ground outside.
How to Buy the Right Type of Air Conditioner for Your Home?
When looking for an air conditioner, make sure to choose the following features—
Having different fan speeds is helpful because it controls the intensity at which your room cools (and also how much noise the air conditioner makes). An average number of fan speeds is usually three. Few models also have a fan-only setting, which does not cool the room but simply circulates the air. We don’t recommend purchasing an air conditioner merely for the fan feature, along with the dehumidification function. Buying a fan instead of an AC will save you space, money, and the hassle of setting it up.
Many air conditioners do have a dehumidifier built-in. This might be beneficial if you want an appliance that can be used all year, not just during the summer. Some may require you to attach a hose (often not included) to drain the water. Others would need you to set up the unit as if it were an air conditioner, with the hose dangling out the open window (which you wouldn’t have to do with a standalone air conditioner). If you’re looking for a dehumidifier, in particular, we suggest investing in a dedicated dehumidifier.
Some air conditioner models can also be used as electric heaters, which can be helpful in winters too.
Smartphone Control or Remote Control
If you want to change the settings without getting out of your bed or couch, this is a good option. Every smart air conditioner goes under thorough privacy and security examination.
Sleep or Night Mode
The compressor and fan are powered at a slower speed, which reduces noise. Sometimes, the ideal temperature will rise naturally to keep you comfortable and cosy throughout the night. Even in sleep mode, the air conditioner remains noisy. It’s preferable to pre-cool your room before going to bed rather than trying to sleep with the air conditioner on.
This enables you to schedule the system to turn on and off automatically, which is handy if you want to return home to a cool house or save energy by making the system turn off after you’ve gone to sleep. Choose a model that includes a clock and a 24-hour configuration. Some are only equipped with countdown or delay timers which must be reset on a regular basis.
Benefits of Domestic Air Conditioning
Better Indoor Air Quality
Air conditioners move and clean the air, which removes toxins and mould. This is particularly important for allergy and asthma sufferers because it eliminates the toxic substances that cause an attack. This is only valid if the system is kept clean and filters are maintained on a regular basis. If not, the air conditioner could actually contribute to indoor air pollution. Cleaning your air filter would also keep your air conditioner running smoothly. A clogged air filter can make your air conditioner freeze or blow warm air.
Better Quality of Sleep
It’s difficult to sleep when the air around you is too hot. Even if you exhaust yourself to the point of fatigue and fall asleep, you will most likely wake up sweating – not to mention the poor sleep you will get as a result of your body’s heat. Air conditioning units are undeniably the solution to this problem. With a cooler and comfortable home temperature, you will not only get a better night’s sleep, but you’ll also be more likely to wake up in a good mood and refreshed.
Fumes & Odours
Air conditioning certainly keeps odours and fumes away, whether they come from smoke, polluted air, cleaning chemicals, or spoiled milk. By replacing stale air with fresh air, you eliminate any odours or contaminants that could be harmful to your health.
Your room will become damp and wet if you don’t have efficient air conditioning. As a result, the room is vulnerable to mold. The health advantage of air conditioning is that it keeps the air dry and prevents the growth of fungus, mold, etc.
