It can be difficult to choose the right heating system for your home when the winter is at its height. This is particularly true if you’re new to heating and cooling solutions. However, your choice of heating air conditioning system is an important one. You are investing a significant sum of money into a system that will be keeping your home comfortable all through the winter season, and you likely want this air conditioning system to last for years. How can you make the right choice? Let’s have a look at four things you should consider when selecting your home heating system. Before we we get into the ethos however, we would like to brief you on the types of heating systems on the market. We have the ducted heating, ducted reverse cycle and ducted gas heating.
What Do They Mean by a “Good” Heating System?
Before going into any other details, it is important that you know what you’re looking for. Indeed, you want an ducted air conditioning system that is good. But what makes it good? You want to look for efficiency. The best systems are the ones that effectively cool your home while using as little energy as possible. If you’re not careful about this, you might wake up one day with a huge utility bill. Also, you’re going to want to look for units that are dependable, and that will work for years and years. A good ducted air conditioning system will last for years with minimal maintenance. Finally, you might want to make sure that you get a unit that is silent. Otherwise, you might have to deal with constant noise that will become a major nuisance.
Make sure it fit!! as they always say; size matter!
Obviously, buying an ducted air conditioning system that is too small is no good. A small system won’t be able to heat up the entire house. Using a small ducted air conditioner to heat a large house will overtax the system and cause problems down the track. On those awfully cold nights, you’ll find your small ducted heaters not measuring up and leaving you and your family out in the cold. However, choosing a system that is too large has its own problems, too. Using an oversized ducted system means that the units will turn off and then back on quite frequently, increasing the amount of your utility bill. Generally, in order to ensure that you get just the right size, you should ask a contractor for help. Our contractors are highly trained and are about to get you an accurate measurement and what would work best for your home. He or she will take into account various factors, such as the insulation in your home, the size of your windows and the space you want to cool. An experienced contractor will be able to help you choose the best size of air conditioner for your home.
Efficiency is key to saving
Air conditioners that are sold in Australia are required by law to display their energy efficiency rating using a star system. As a rule of thumb, the more stars a unit has, the more efficient the product is. Additionally, you should look for an estimate of the power consumption for one year. This information can also be found on the label. Selecting a system that is energy efficient means that you’ll also be getting one that is cost effective.
Choose a safe ducted heating system
Air conditioners used to be built so that they would trap dust and other particles. More recent units, however, come with features that try to improve the quality of the air their work with. Some of the available features include antiviral, UV, and antioxidant filtering systems. It is also important to get an air conditioning system that keeps the moisture in the air at an optimal level. An air conditioner that manages the air’s moisture concentration will help you to avoid dry skin and other health issues that arise in dry environments.
Selecting the perfect home air conditioning system doesn’t have to be stressful, despite its importance. Knowing what you need in an air conditioner is the first step to selecting the unit that will best cool your home. With knowledge of your home and the help of a heating and cooling expert, you can find an air conditioning unit that can cool your home, keep you healthy and help you to save money.
