Air conditioning is pretty simple, right? You switch the unit on and the room cools down. Not exactly rocket science.
However, you might be surprised to find out that air cons have more than meets the eye. They do much more than just cool the air, and they come with a wealth of benefits many people aren’t aware of.
Cool-Tec have decades of experience working with a huge range of different air con units. In this post, we reveal 3 surprising facts about air cons you may not know.
1. Air Cons Aren’t Just For Cooling
Although air cons are usually associated with cooling, that’s not all they can do.
Many modern air con models contain a reversing valve that lets you switch between cooling and heating. Rather than having to purchase separate systems, a single unit can be used to cool your home in summer and warm it in winter – a complete climate control solution.
At Cool-Tec, most of the air conditioning units we offer have built-in temperature control systems. Choose between heating, cooling, or ventilation!
2. Air Cons Can Reduce Asthma Attacks
Although everyone benefits from breathing clean air, it’s especially important for the 5.4 million people living with asthma in the UK.
Air cons don’t just cool the air inside your house – they filter out any pollutants, allergens, and dust mites found within it. By reducing the moisture in the air, they also help prevent damp, which can lead to harmful mould spores releasing into the air.
Dirty air is a common cause of asthma attacks. By installing an air con, the air you breathe will be cleaner, cutting down your risk of an attack.
Important note: Pollutants are removed by the air con’s filters, so make sure you’re replacing your filters every 30 to 60 days. Otherwise, dirty air will cycle through your air con back into your home.
3. Air Con Helps Repel Insects and Parasites
When your house is sweltering in the summer, it’s tempting to throw open all your windows and let some fresh air in.
Of course, summer is also when all the bugs come out to play. Open windows make it easy for insects to enter your home, which can lead to a whole host of problems – especially if you’re an arachnophobe!
Because air cons work better with windows closed, you can close off all windows to the outside world in the summer, denying access to the many bugs waiting to come in.
As a plus, insects tend to seek warm, moist places to nest. Even if you do leave a window open, air cons make your home less appealing to insects by keeping it cool and dry.
