What are the features to look for in an Air Conditioner?

Because of the creation of the air conditioner, now our lives are made easier. No longer do we need to endure the heat that the weather provides, now, with just a click of a button, an air conditioner can easily provide a conducive environment for residents to work, play and rest.

However, getting the right air conditioning system is not an easy thing to do. There are many features that you need to look for in an air conditioning system before you get one.

In this article, we will provide a list of guidelines that you can take note of before you buy an air conditioning system. Make sure that you read the rest of this article before going to the department store or the malls.

Choose one with adjustable thermostat.

The weather changes every now and then. There are days when it’s too hot while on some days it could be too cold. This is why it is highly recommended that you get an AC unit that is able to change its thermostat easily. Look for a unit that has at least two cooling speeds.

Find one that isn’t noisy.

Unfortunately, doing this can be challenging since most air conditioning units produce unnecessary noise when in use. What you need to do is to find the right AC that has the lowest noise level.

Ask if it is energy-efficient.

When you have an air conditioner at home, it is inevitable that your electricity bill would go up. If you want to save up on your electricity bills, find one that has a high energy efficient ratio or the ERR. This ERR is printed at the back of every AC that is sold in the market. Look for the EER and check if it is high. Take note that the higher the EER is, the more efficient it is.

Look for warranty.

Always ask about the warranty given to your air conditioning unit. In the event that your AC unit has spoilt or isn’t functioning well, you can get your AC unit serviced without even forking out a single cent. Note that for certain kinds of warranty, you would still have to get your air condition serviced if the fault is due to your negligence.

Check the price all the time.

The amount that you need to pay depends on the type and brand of air conditioner that you will use. Make sure that you have set a budget. Only buy an AC that is within your budget. However, never compromise on quality. Look for a brand that is known or famous in the market. This is the best way to guarantee that you would be able to enjoy lots of benefits from your purchase.

Lastly, if you are looking at an international brand online, remember to ask if they do aircon installation in Singapore. Some companies offer a small service fee if you would like to get them to set up the air conditioner unit at your home.
