Top 3 air conditioning myths debunked
Although air conditioning systems are widely used across the UK, there are still a number of myths and misunderstandings about them and how they should be used. In an effort to dispel a few misconceptions regarding air conditioners, we’ve debunked three myths below.
Myth 1: The purpose of an air conditioner is solely to cool the air
Although air conditioners provide a consistent stream of cold air, there is really another component at play when it comes to keeping you comfortable in hot temperatures. Air conditioners not only cool the air but also help to lower humidity levels. This feature of your air conditioner is particularly useful when the weather is very humid.
Myth 2: The larger the air conditioning unit, the greater the performance
Although size is important, it is not just a question of purchasing a large unit. A suitably sized air conditioning unit is one that has been selected to accommodate your house. For example, factors such as insulation, air leakage, roof features and the orientation of the windows in relation to the outside environment, can impact which unit is right for your home.
Air conditioners that are properly sized consume less power and ensure to keep your property at a comfortable temperature efficiently and cost-effectively.
Myth 3: Air conditioners demand a great deal of maintenance
Split system air conditioners need relatively little maintenance, other than the occasional cleaning of the filters. We suggest that you clean your filters at least once a season to ensure that they are performing at their best in terms of removing allergens such as pollen, as well as reducing germs and viruses.
If you use your air conditioner frequently, we typically suggest having it checked by a specialist at least once a year so that they can give it a thorough inspection and guarantee that it is operating as effectively as possible.
