Air conditioning is the perfect addition to your new home, however there are several factors to take into consideration when purchasing. Here are a few essentials to mull over when finding the right system for you!
The Good News
Air conditioning has never been easier to install into a brand new home – especially if you are after a ducted system! In fact, did you know many existing two-storey houses are unable to install ducted air conditioning because spaces for the ducting cannot be accessed? Avoid the hassles of roof space restrictions and finding the right spot for your outdoor unit by designing your home with air conditioning in mind.
1. How big is your household?
If you are a family with two working parents and all of your children attend school, chances are, you will rarely have the air conditioning running during the day.
This means you may want to consider installing a smart system such as MyAir into your new home. This will allow you to turn on your aircon via your smartphone when you leave the office so that your house will be lovely and cool by the time you pick the kids up and head home. We live in an age of constantly evolving technology – why not integrate it into your brand new home?
Hot Tip: Always take into consideration your lifestyle when purchasing an air conditioner.
2. What is the climate like in your neighbourhood?
If your area of the country experiences extreme heat, or extreme cold, or both during different seasons, this needs to be factored into your decision.
You don’t want to purchase a system that is too small and will struggle to counteract the outside heat. Buying a system that has the capacity to work under the extreme weather conditions in your area is essential, and will ensure its longevity and enhanced performance.
3. How much money could you save with eco functions?
Many air conditioners include eco functions that can save you a heap of money in the long run, for an outright cost that is relatively small in comparison.
Zoning is an effective way to decrease your energy bill and is good for the environment. Save the ozone layer and your wallet simultaneously!
Zoning allows you to control the airflow to each room in your house so if the whole family is watching a movie in the living room, you can turn off the aircon in all other rooms to save on electricity.
Zoning is smart and independent; many devices use sensor technology to recognise when a person enters and leaves the room and adjusts the temperature accordingly.
MyAir is our recommended zoning go-to as it incorporates smart technology for remote access.
4. Find air conditioning installation experts who have experience working with builders.
You probably talk to your builder more often then you call your Mum at the moment. We understand that your relationship with your builder is important, your dream home is in their hands after all!
