Too Big or Too Small? It’s Complicated
We know that air-conditioning is much more complicated than it first appears. Buying a unit that is too small for the area to be cooled forces it to run on higher speeds to work properly, potentially causing maintenance issues. If the unit is too big it will consume more electricity that is needed. Either way, your energy bills will climb and you may not get the cool, comfortable environment you were expecting.
Efficient ducted air conditioning is an option that many consumers are now taking seriously. Previously, it was considered too expensive for the average household, but we are installing more and more of the newer units, which are more efficient and less costly. They also provide the option of sealing off unused rooms so energy is not being wasted on cooling spaces that are not occupied.
Multiple Factors Must be Considered
We consider factors like the construction material of the home, its location and aspect, the window coverings, room sizes and ceiling heights. If it faces west, we suggest tinting the windows to keep out the worst of the summer heat so the unit runs more effectively. External shades or blinds over the windows are also very effective.
There are so many different types of air conditioning products now available that you really need an expert to help in the decision-making process. Going it alone could result in a poor choice that is not effective and runs up your power bill.
