Home Air Conditioning – The benefits explained.
By installing air conditioning into the home you’ll benefit in many ways. Here are what we consider to be the top ten benefits of home air conditioning.
1. Controllable comfort.
Today’s home air conditioning systems allow you to enjoy the perfect indoor temperature in any of the rooms within your home.
Bedrooms can be kept cool and comfortable throughout the warmest of summer nights, and studys or out-buildings used by those working from home can remain a productive and workable environment, even in the peak of summer.
But all of today’s home air conditioning systems can heat as well as cool, allowing conservatories and loft conversions which are typically too hot in the summer and difficult to keep warm in the winter, to be enjoyed at a constant level of comfort throughout the entire year.
2. Reduction in humidity.
In addition to providing accurate temperature control, today’s air conditioning systems also reduce the humidity within your home to eliminate the ‘stickiness’ associated with our UK summers. Most systems have a dedicated ‘dry’ mode, where humidity can be reduced without over-cooling the room. Ideal for homes in damp locations!
3. Silent operation.
Today’s residential air conditoners are much quieter than conventional table-top or pedestal fans, ensuring that your night’s sleep is both comfortable, and peaceful.
4. Banish nuisance insects.
With air conditioning installed, doors and windows can be kept closed keeping out those nusiance insects that bite in the night!
5. Eliminate external noise pollution.
Being able to keep doors and windows closed also keeps out the noise. A great benefit for infants or shift workers needing to sleep in the day time, or those who relish a lie-in on the weekend!
6. Improved safety and security at home.
The ability to keep doors and windows closed improves the safety and security of your home, especially at night time. In summer months, open windows can represent a safety risk to children sleeping in first floor bedrooms, a and security risk exists to anyone sleeping in ground floor bedrooms.
With home air conditioning installed, you’re set to enjoy a safe and secure night’s sleep!
7. Improved air quality.
Today’s home air conditioners feature effective, air-purifying filtration systems to reduce bacteria, dust, house mites, pet fur and pollen, particularly benefitting those who suffer from allergies and respiratory problems.
8. Reduction of energy bills.
The heating capability of today’s air conditioning systems is achieved through the use of highly energy-efficient heat-pump technology, which consumes up to 80% less power than any other form of electric heating.
If you’re currently using night storage heaters or electric convectors, radiant panels or under-floor heating, there’s a huge energy-saving opportunity for you here!
9. Instant heat, exactly when you need it.
Unlike conventional central heating systems, home air conditioners can provide immediate heat. Ideal for those times of year when the weather can be changeable, as low-cost heat is delivered almost immediately, at the touch of a button.
10. Subsidised by the Government.
It’s not often that the Government makes a financial concession to us homeowners, but due to the impressive energy efficiency of such heat-pump systems, they’ve awarded a reduced VAT rate of just 5% to promote the installation of heat-pump air conditioning systems within the home.
