Air Conditioning

In this section of the site, you will find some useful information on air conditining amd cooling solutions for the office or home office

There is no getting away from the fact that when the temperatures rise steeply in summer, you are going to need a way of escaping the heat for some of the time at least. While it is great to enjoy the sun and spend time catching rays or making use of the pool, it is also nice to cool down for a while, especially when its time to sleep at night.

Of course, in the home, night time can often be the time that those who do not have any means of cooling their home down on the inside while it is hot on the outside really need it. That's because it can be difficult to sleep when it is too hot, so having a solution to the heat is a necessity.

But what about during the day while you are working in your office? How can you keep cool there while observing a reasonable level of economy and keeping power consumption to within reasonable levels?


That is where you can make the decision to go for a large, expensive house-wide air conditioning system, or save money by opting for one or two of the smaller, less expensive portable air conditioners that you can buy for a fraction of the cost of a large system. A large, whole house air cooling system, or heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system can be costly to install and also to run.

This is especially so if the house is large and there are very few people at home at any given time of the day. Many of the rooms will be nice and cool but never visited by anyone to enjoy the costly benefits!

Modern portable units can run very quietly and therefore make an excellent choice for keeping the bedroom cool at night, even if you don't need it at other times of the day. There is not much point in using power to cool rooms that are not being used and this is more acutely noticed when you live along or as a couple. The great thing about portable air conditioning units is that you can simply move them from room to room as you go to keep cool.


The major consideration when choosing an air cooling system for your home should always be the economics of installing and running it. The impact to the household budget is only one side of this coin but one that is often the most important to the household.

An equally important albeit less considered side of this is the impact to the environment. Running a power hungry large system may well be expensive in terns of energy bills each quarter, but it is also expensive in terms of the greater amount of resource stripping it takes to generate the electricity that runs large systems.

It costs natural resources that will never be replaced and increases the level of pollution to the atmosphere that we breathe, the water we drink and the land that feeds us. That may sound like an environmentalist's tirade against an insensitive multinational company, but its real and it is an issue that is worth considering.
