Bedroom Air conditioning

What to look for when selecting bedroom air conditioning?

Bedroom air conditioning must be quiet. In the still of the night, noisy air conditioners are at the least very annoying and can hinder a good night’s sleep.

Check the noise ratings of the brands that you are considering. Go for a brand with 5 fan speed settings and if you are sensitive to noise select a brand with indoor quiet mode. Top of the range brands like Daikin will have a DB sound rating of less than 20db on low fan speed and indoor quiet mode.

How to deter Geckos from getting into air conditioners

Hi Everybody,

I look pretty cute but I am one of the biggest causes of air conditioners to break down. You see I like very warm places to snuggle into so I find sleeping on the electronic printed circuit board very comfortable. The only problem is that my body causes the printed circuit board to short circuit (fail) and ends my life prematurely. Not good for your air conditioner (repair cost around $500) and of course not good for me. I am going to let you into a little secret. I hate the smell of moth balls and I hate the smell of lanolin and I am not a fan of rVicks Vapour Rub.
