Be cool this summer – update your air-conditioning now!
With summer fast approaching, now is the time many Perth families make the decision to invest in or upgrade their air-conditioning systems. But with so many options out there, how do you know which one is best for you?
If you’re in the market for an air-conditioner and feeling overwhelmed by all your options – you’re not alone! Here’s a few tips to get your started.
Choose your type
There are different types of air-conditioning, and your choice will depend on your budget, the size of your home and the rooms you’re cooling, and what you want your system to do for you.
The most popular type of air-conditioners for Australian homes is the split system. These are energy efficient, come in a range of sizes to suit different sized rooms, and are friendly on the budget. Most importantly, your split system will also take care of your heating in the wintertime.
Ducted, reverse cycle air-conditioning is also a great option, particularly for larger homes. By having ducts in each room and the option for zoning to control the temperature in different rooms, everyone is comfortable and happy with ducted air-conditioning. Ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning will also heat your home in winter.
Evaporative systems work well in Perth homes as they draw in the dry air from outside and cool through wet pads before pushing it inside; however, if you have an evaporative air-con system, you’ll need to find another way of heating when the colder months hit.
