Home Air Conditioning

Air conditioners not only reduce the room temperature in hot summers, but also serve to dehumidify and filter the air.

What should you look for when buying?

Anyone who needs an air conditioner should evaluate their own cooling demand prior to purchase: How many days a year I need cooling? Good for me, a heat pump unit that can be used as a heating system? How many rooms are affected, and how big are they?

Air conditioners make noise

In any case, you can ask about the noise generated by the device and confirm the general statements such as "quiet operation" by a corresponding decibel value. Many air-conditioners achieve a noise level of 50 decibels.

Modern devices are flexible

Air conditioners consume the most power, if they run continually at full speed. He also wears out faster. Therefore, prefer to buy a size larger. Modern air conditioning systems can not only turn on and off, but also regulate. Behind this is a flexible compressor whose rotational speed adapts to the cooling requirements. This automatic speed control keeps the temperature constant.
