Spring is the season of renewal, providing a window of opportunity to prepare for the pleasant days of summer just around the corner.
For homeowners, it is the ideal time to look at the cooling systems installed in the house.
Basking in the sun is a great way to spend a summer afternoon, especially when you can escape anytime to a pleasantly cooled interior.
There is a significant difference between a cool home and a cold one. Utilising the right air conditioner requires an understanding in temperature control but also in humidity and other moisture factors.
When looking for an air conditioner there are a number of factors to consider.
The brand, cooling capacity and energy efficiency of the product are important. Given that the air conditioner will not be used year round, buying a good quality product is important.
The cooling capacity indicates the ‘strength’ of the appliance. It is measured in British thermals units/ hour.
For example, an office which has several people in it, along with several computers and other electronics which all produce heat, will require a higher BTU/h air conditioner, than a bedroom for two people.
The energy efficiency of air conditioners is rated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER).
The higher the SEER rating of a unit, the more energy efficient it is, thus saving you more money over time.
Lower Mainland based Centra Windows currently offer air conditioners that range in SEER ratings from 14.0 to 18.0.
The company offers amortization options of up to 10 years, with low interest rates, automatic debit and penalty-less pay outs at the time of your choice.
