If you are considering installing air conditioning for the first time you may be wondering exactly what is involved in the process. Air conditioning is a financial investment and there are a number of things you need to take into consideration, both large and small, but air conditioning Perth homes doesn’t have to be a long drawn out and painful process, so read on as we take a look at what you need to know.
Ducted Air Conditioning or Split System Air Conditioning?
Your first decision should probably be whether you want a ducted system or a split system installed in your home. Ducted air conditioning will allow you to completely control your home’s climate in every room of the house. Air is transferred, delivered and removed via ducts which are placed in your roof and pass through the home. Of course you can choose which rooms you want to be air conditioned and the ducting can be designed to exactly match your family’s needs. The ducts can also be grouped into zones so that you can choose your own temperature in any given area.
A split system air conditioner is idea for smaller, individual spaces such as your living room or the bedrooms. Split systems come in a number of configurations, are wall mounted and are an ideal bank account-friendly option for anyone living in an apartment or a small house, or for those on a budget.
Another thing to think about is that if you are installing ducted air conditioning Perth has a climate which will benefit from a helping hand when it comes to both heating and cooling the home and in order for your AC system to work effectively and be cost effective you really should have your roof insulated. Without insulation you’ll be allowing your warmed or cooled air to escape and you’ll be forcing your air con system to work harder than necessary as it struggles to maintain the temperature levels you have set it at. This in turn can decrease its life span – and of course it will be costing you money unnecessarily.
Insulating your roof is fairly costly but this cost should be offset by the money you save in energy bills over the course of a year.
