Until recently, most of us would only have used air conditioning when we went abroad to hot counties. However, climate change and air pollution are driving more UK domestic homeowners to install air conditioning in their homes. Fluctuating temperatures, high energy bills and air pollution are among many factors that are seeing homeowners look at more efficient and healthy home heating solutions.
While many people still associate air conditioning with just cooling, systems do in fact offer a much wider range of benefits. So, here are 7 key benefits of air conditioning that are worth considering.
Heating and Cooling
Air conditioning is designed to both heat and cool indoor spaces. Modern, energy efficient air conditioning systems can replace gas boilers and provide you with year-round comfort. Systems can be put on a timer, just like your gas boiler, and you can even have different temperature settings for different rooms (depending on the system installed).
The latest technology comprises single component refrigerant with low global warming potential (GWP), and uses very low energy. It is also reusable and recyclable.
All of the major manufacturers of air conditioning systems now offer smart technology options as a way of controlling your air conditioning system. Smart Apps allow you to monitor and control your system from your phone – you can turn on your system when you leave work and your home will be the perfect temperature when you arrive. The App’s also allow you to control each individual unit and monitor energy use.
If you or a family member suffer from allergies or asthma, air conditioning will be a blessing! Gas central heating creates dry heat, which can cause skin irritations and can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Air conditioning technology is designed to remove pollutants and mould from the air by filtering the intake air and delivering fresh, clean air all day, every day.
Also, you can avoid having to open windows in high pollen months, allowing you to breathe easy and stay healthy.
We’ve all been there – restless nights due to over-heating or freezing night temperatures. The beauty of air conditioning is that you can keep it at an ambient temperature on a low energy setting, just to your liking. And, you can keep your windows closed too, avoiding disturbance from traffic and air pollution. Modern air conditioning is super quiet too – you won’t hear a thing as you drift off to sleep!
Without the need to keep windows during the night, or ajar whilst you are at work (particularly in summer), your home will be more secure. Also, it avoids the risk of having any insurance claims denied because you left a window partially open.
Clunky pipes and noisy boilers will be a thing of the past once you’ve experienced air conditioning - it is whisper quiet. Outdoor units are also designed to be ultra-quiet, so you and your neighbours will be undisturbed.
