You’ve probably seen the star-filled labels on a number of white goods including air conditioners and wondered how they actually work. They may look confusing, however luckily for us, the Australian Government has already done all the hard work in terms of calculating how energy efficient certain appliances are.
When you live in a country with our weather extremes, installing an air conditioner in your home makes perfect sense. From systems that combat heat and humidity to those that ensure sub-zero winters are effortlessly tolerated, the range out there in the market is wide and varied.
With such a wide variety of air conditioning systems on the market, choosing and purchasing the right one for your home or business can be confusing. But regardless of whether you choose a split system or a ducted air conditioner, you need to consider a multitude of factors that will ensure your air conditioning solution is tailored specifically to your needs. That’s why it’s critical that you get the right advice from the very beginning.
Summer is definitely here and you’re feeling the heat, but unfortunately, a little more than usual this year because you forgot to book your regular air conditioning maintenance before the actual heatwave hit! However, no need to panic – there are a few DIY checks you can still do before summer ends, and of course, there’s still time for you to schedule in a consultation with a service professional. It’s worth remembering though that neglecting one of your home’s biggest investments could mean facing higher energy costs, constant repair bills and a possible unit replacement … all because you forgot to pick up the phone. Here is an air conditioning maintenance checklist that may just help you be a bit more prepared next year!
During a sweltering Australian summer nothing offers more relief than a well-functioning air conditioner. But if you’ve noticed lately that the airflow has diminished, your unit’s not cooling like it used to, or it’s started to make some very strange noises, then it’s definitely time for an air conditioning service.
However, if that’s been done recently and you’re still having problems, it’s worth remembering that like all appliances, air conditioning systems have a limited lifespan regardless of how often they’re maintained. So how do you know when to replace your air conditioner?
With our wonderfully long summers, it’s no wonder that more and more Australians are investing in an air conditioning system to help cool things down during the heat of the day. In peak season, your air conditioner needs to work even harder, meaning unfortunately your air conditioning bill does too – at charging you more! Here are 7 ways to lower your air conditioning bill this summer.
If you’ve ever sweltered through months of incessant heat without air conditioning, you’ll appreciate just how wonderful it is to take advantage of a cost-effective, well-functioning air conditioning system to take away the discomfort of an Australian summer.
Does your home have a bit of a musty smell about it? Are your allergies playing up a little more than usual? If so, you might have mould in your air conditioning system. Mould in air conditioning is a real problem across Brisbane. Our humid climate and warm summers foster the growth of mould perfectly and this can be a nightmare for homeowners! Mould anywhere is far from ideal, but mould in air conditioning is especially bad.
When the summer air outside is so warm that it feels like someone is constantly pointing a cheap hairdryer in your face, opening windows to encourage a draught offers little relief. In 30-degree heat, ceiling fans are no more useful than the fan in the back of your oven; they just spread the heat around and make you cook faster. Only a quality air conditioner can offer over-heating Australians guaranteed access to a cool breeze.
