Escape the heat this summer

Don’t let the heat get the best of you this season. A new aircon from Voltex can help you keep your cool now and stay comfortable all year round!

In order to get the most out of an air conditioning unit, planning is everything. Before you can sit back and enjoy your air-conditioned space, take a moment and learn how to get the most out of your new product.

1. Installation and Maintenance.

Carefully consider where in your home or office to install your air conditioner. An aircon can be too ‘big’ or too ‘small’ for a space so ensure you get professional advice when determining how powerful an aircon needs to be for your specific needs. Choosing the right size for the right space could save you lots of money over time. It’s also highly recommended that you don’t install the unit alone.

Allowing an accredited electrician to assist with installation will preserve your warranty and ensure everything is installed safely and correctly. Proper maintenance and care will prolong your unit’s life and ensure you’re saving money every month the aircon runs.

2. Positioning.

Where you install your aircon makes a big difference. Find a spot in an appropriately sized room and ensure both the inside and outside components are both easily accessible for maintenance. Place the unit away from other heat producing electronics and don’t try to hide the outside unit behind shrubs or where there may be debris. Position the unit in a well-ventilated space. The hot air shouldn’t be trapped as this will affect the indoor cooling and overall efficiency of your aircon.

Consider installing a ceiling fan in the same room if your budget allows. The fan will help move the cold air around and more effectively cool the area. Closing blinds and curtains will further assist in cooling the space by shielding the area from the sun’s rays. This will allow your unit to more easily keep the area cool and additionally save you money every month on your electricity bill.

3. Sit Back and Enjoy.

Owning a well-maintained aircon unit comes with a whole host of benefits besides controlling the temperature of your house. Air conditioners also increase the quality of air around it by circulating it through filters. The filter removes particulates from the air like dust, pollen and other potentially harmful pollutants. But only if you take the time to keep the filter clean.

There is evidence that suggests air-conditioning improves productivity! Working in temperature-controlled spaces allows people to focus more easily on the task at hand rather than on their discomfort. Cooler spaces are also beneficial to the other electronic devices in a room, preserving their efficacy and performance.

If you don’t already have an aircon installed in your home, now is the time to invest. Buy a brand new aircon unit from Voltex today and prepare to enjoy all the benefits that come with owning one!
