    Why do you need an air conditioner?

    Based on a survey of 1,411 Which? website members conducted in October 2019, only 8% of British householders have an air conditioner in their house. Many of those who do own one tell that they only use it rarely, on days that are really roasting hot, or on muggy summer nights to make it easier to sleep. A few people tell that they used their appliance for heating on cooler days, or as a dehumidifier, as it came with these functions too. Even those of our customers who have had the system installed thinking they would only use it in July and August have reported using it all year round and sleeping more soundly than they did before. If you live in an older building or an apartment complex in London, you may not even realise you can have a cooling system installed.



    The benefits of air conditioning:

    • Extreme conditions such as heat and humidity can impact on our overall physical intellectual activity, making even the simplest of tasks an absolute chore. Having a proper air conditioning system in place helps reduce heat and humidity, thus reducing the impact on our ability to perform and complete work tasks.
    • The lower temperatures that air conditioners create can help reduce dehydration as they lessen the likelihood of excessive sweating.
    • When the air conditioning system has been installed properly, it effectively helps renew and improve air quality.
    • Less Insects And Parasites: Did you know that you can keep fleas off your dog with air conditioning? Air conditioning filters are more effective in keeping bugs out than an open window. This not only protects you (and your pets!) but it keeps your house cleaner.
    • Better Sleep: We actually sleep better in colder conditions and air conditioning is the perfect answer to that! We’ve learned previously that there are many tips to sleep better, one of which is keeping your bedroom cool.
    • Prevents Electronics From Overheating: While we know when our bodies are getting too hot, electronics can’t always tell us when they are. Heat can do serious damage on electronics such as shortening their lifespan to losing data.
    • Improves Work Performance: Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to drag on because it’s hot and uncomfortable? Air conditioning can fix that! Air conditioning can actually improve employee comfort keeping their minds clear and ready to tackle their tasks for the day.
    • Reduces The Risk Of Dehydration: Lower temperatures mean less sweating. A lot of people don’t realize that when we sweat we are actually losing a large percentage of our water intake. It is important to keep hydrated when out in extreme conditions, but this can all be avoided by enjoying the indoors with some air conditioning.
    • Reduces The Risk Of Heat Stroke: Hundreds of people have died from heat stroke. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that, “air conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death.”
    • Less Noise: Typically doors and windows are closed off to air conditioned rooms. This means less noise enters the room keeping these places cool and quiet. Are you looking to replace your existing HVAC system? Or maybe you’re looking to add one altogether? Contact us today!
