Air conditioning

Household prices for air conditioning

Air conditioning in the home can be via a portable or permanent unit. The portable units are typically more money per btu or cooling but have little or no installation costs. The downside is that they are noisy and require the hot air to be vented out of a window usually through a 1.5-3m long pipe. This is not always as easy as it seems. A permanent unit usually comes in two parts. The compressor is situated outside the building (On an exterior wall or placed on or near the roof). As it is outside the building this type of air conditioning unit is usually quieter than the portable unit. Also more room outside means the unit can have a larger cooling capacity than a portable unit. Inside the room is placed the vent and control box which exhausts the cool or hot air and allows you to set the required air temperature. The downside is that the installation should be done via a trained installer and will usually require holes to be cut into walls. There are self contained units that are wall mounted and do not need to be fitted by a trained fitter, but the downside is they aren't as powerful and cost more money. Air conditioning keeps the room cool even in the hottest weather. Air conditioning works on a similar principle to a fridge. Air conditioning is a great way to remain comfortable, however it does use up a large amount of electricity and can be expensive to maintain.
