We all know just how unberable the heat can be during an Australian summer, which means that staying cool is vital to just be able to function normally. It can also get cold in winter as well, meaning you might need a heater to keep you warm.
With Australian weather being so temperamental, especially in Melbourne, a quality air conditioner is vital. Check out our top reasons why you need to choose a quality air conditioner for your home.
It’s a long term investment
Rather than buying a cheaper air conditioner that is of less quality, having it break a few years down the line and having to purchase a new one, buying a quality air conditioner will mean that you’re making a long term investment. Finding an air conditioner with a warranty on it will help you keep peace of mind that you’re investing in a quality system that will stand the test of time.
Keep your home at the right temperature
You want to invest in an air conditioner that doesn’t just keep you cool, but keeps you warm too. With the temperature ever-changing, you need to be able to adjust your air conditioner to suit the weather and the temperature, to keep you at the perfect temperature all year round. Ensure that the air conditioner you invest in does both of these.
It will be energy efficient
You want to make sure that you invest in a quality air conditioner that is energy efficient, and will stay this way long term. It’s not uncommon to find that air conditioners might not work as well after a while and this in turns makes them become inefficient, which can increase your electricity costs.
Make sure that you regularly maintain your air conditioner to keep it in the best condition for as long as possible.
It will purify the air
A good quality air conditioner will also purify the air, and will come with a built-in air-purifying filter. This traps fine airborne particles, such as smoke particles. Some higher quality air conditioners will even trap microscopic particles, decompose odours and absorb and deactivate bacteria and viruses.
With Australia having one of the highest rates of asthma in the world, ensuring your air conditioner has an air purifying functionality is an important consideration.
Central air conditioning systems come in two parts – a condensing unit that stays outside your home and the evaporator (or air handler) that stays indoors. Because the condensing unit is the noisy part of the system, most people are happy with noise levels on most central air systems. In some home, however, the ductwork may be loose and contribute to excess noise. If especially quiet operation is a priority for you, ensure that Husky knows this in advance so we can help you get the quietest system possible.
