We acknowledge that air conditioners have become an ubiquitous part of our daily life. Heat comes with serious consequences to human life and health. For that reason, air conditioners are vital, making them a worthwhile investment. Kenya’s weather conditions vary throughout the year. This is attributed to the fact that Kenya lies on the equator and other factors such as altitude. There is, thus, some consideration that users should put into consideration before buying AC systems.
Size of the room
The size/capacity of the AC should be as per the size of your room. Choose an air conditioner with the right cooling capacity according to the space of the room you intend to install the AC. If the room is bigger, AC with high capacity will be ideal to be able to provide proper dehumidification and vise versa. A unit with proper cooling capacity for the ideal space will not turn off and on often and the operational cost will be more favorable in terms of energy consumption.
It is important to properly install an air conditioning unit to get the most out of it. The window AC is a compact unit designed to be attached to the windows, whereas a split AC has a compressor unit outside the house and one indoor unit inside the room, specifically designed for the better flow of air. Make sure that the AC unit is installed by professional experts to avoid flaws that will be costlier or disastrous. The performance parameter of the AC depends on the installation.
ACS these days have air filters installed that remove odors, smoke, and germs from the air. A good filter not only ensures clean air but also enhances the cooling performance and the energy efficiency of AC by preventing the choking of the evaporator coil due to dust.
Technology and price
While Air Conditioners are packed with features these days, one should choose the Air Conditioner that is equipped with technology catering to the user’s needs. It’s important to stick to a well-established brand providing all vital features and at a reasonable price. Local contractors help you choose the most cost-effective and best technology of HVAC. They will also help with air conditioning maintenance in the future.
After-sale service and warranty
A customer needs to get the warranty after-sales or the availability of the maintenance in case of future breakdown. Keeping this in mind, always go with the brand that provides value to its customers after selling something. After-sale service is the point where the company’s credibility is being tested.
In conclusion, it is very important to have an AC that suits and works efficiently to serve the need. You must have some knowledge about the air conditioning you are going to buy.
