As we experience more periods of very hot weather in the summer, it is becoming more popular to have air conditioning in our homes to help keep us comfortable when the temperature outside rises. Anyone who suffers on those hot sticky nights often will find that a fan just doesn’t cut it and you need to have the power of air conditioning to help you to get a good quality night’s sleep!
When we saw temperatures rise above 40 degrees Celsius last July, many more people started to take an interest in adding air conditioning to their home in order to prevent that uncomfortable feeling of extreme heat in the future and give them some refuge from it! In the UK, our homes are traditionally built to keep the heat in and to make the building feel warmer. However, climate change means that we need to think more now about cooling our overly warm homes in the summer months.
There are many different types of home air conditioning systems, so it is worth looking into the various types and speaking to a professional like this air con Stroud based company https://acecc.co.uk/air-conditioning-near-me/air-conditioning-stroud before you go ahead and get the first type you see installed.
Portable units are a simple solution and they do not need a professional to install them. Like a fan you can move this unit from room to room and all you need to do is to plug it into a socket in the wall, making it a convenient choice as you can move it to where you want it. However, you will need to put the duct out of a window, as you would a tumble dryer, and you will also need to have a tray to collect the condensation.
Air conditioning units that are installed in the building must be put in by a professional as it is something that can be dangerous if you get it wrong. They use copper pipes and are connected up to a fan that is placed on the outside of the building. The units indoors can be placed in different rooms and come in an array of different types, from ceiling units to boxes placed on the wall.
