The Benefits of Installing Air Conditioning
Surviving Australian summers is no mean feat. Each time the warm weather rolls around, homeowners across the country reach for their air conditioners to stay cool and comfortable. If you’ve been thinking about installing an air conditioner then now is a great time. Modern air conditioners aren’t just highly effective, they’re also more energy-efficient than ever, meaning you can stay cool without breaking the bank. If you still need convincing, we’re going to go over the top 5 benefits of installing air conditioning in your home!
1. Stay Cool in Summer and Warm in Winter
Let’s begin with the obvious! An air conditioner is one of the most effective ways to stay cool in summer. If you choose to go for a reverse cycle air conditioner, it can also be used to keep your home warm during winter.
Controlling the temperature inside your home doesn’t just improve comfort, it improves your mental and physical wellbeing. That means it’s easier to focus on things like work or hobbies and to be productive, even on hot days. And don’t forget about your pets. They walk around all day wearing a thick fur coat, so a bit of cooling can help protect their comfort and health too.
2. Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
Air conditioning systems work by drawing up air from inside your home, cooling it down and then blowing it back into the house. During that process, the air is passed through filters that remove most of the dust and particles. This significantly improves the air quality in air conditioned rooms and can help with:
- Pollution levels
- Respiratory conditions
- Odours and fumes
The filtering done by an air conditioner can have a remarkable effect on the health of your family. Filtering allergens, pollutants and other contaminants from the air reduces the strain on your immune system and can help remove airborne viruses and bacteria.
3. Control the Humidity Level
Brisbane’s residents are no strangers to summer humidity. The subtropical climate means our summers aren’t just hot, they’re frequently damp. Both split systems and ducted air conditioners remove moisture from the air when they’re running. In fact, most modern air conditioners have special settings that are dedicated to reducing humidity. This makes your home more comfortable, prevents moisture damage and can reduce mould growth.
4. Extend the Life of Your Belongings
We all know that direct sunlight can damage belongings like furniture, clothes and electronics, but did you know that heat can have the same effect? While the UV radiation in sunlight does a lot of damage to your belongings, simple heat has many of the same effects. The summer heat is more than enough to cause electronics to overheat, potentially ruining batteries and other components such as LCD screens. Clothes and other fabrics are another casualty of heat, with Brisbane summers being more than hot enough to accelerate how quickly your favourite threads break down.
On top of that, controlling temperatures also prolongs the life of any goods that live in the cupboard or on the bench, like canned foods and fresh fruit.
5. Improved Sleep
About 2 in every 5 Australians report that they struggle with sleep. That’s 40% of the population that isn’t getting the recommended amount of sleep every night. Heat can be a huge culprit when it comes to restless nights. While temperatures usually dip through the night, in the hottest parts of the year it can be a struggle to get a refreshing amount of sleep. With an air conditioner, you can control the temperature in your home around the clock, including throughout the night.
