The need for air conditioning is paramount now that we are in the throws of climate change, our summers are getting hotter and last longer, and the need for an instant cooling cure is becoming a necessity rather than a luxury.
If you do not want to go the whole hog and have a system installed a portable air conditioner is the perfect solution, the price is perfect, its compact and can be wheeled around the house directing cool air just where it is needed.
When an air conditioner is in cooling mode it dehumidifies the air, dehumidified air is the perfect comfortable environment to be in, and of course low humidity prevents dust mites and mould populations growing, this is the positive factor for those who suffer from allergies. The most comfortable humidity levels for us humans are levels of 40 to 60%.
Portable air conditioning units can create the perfect environment for you with the right temperature and a comfortable humidity. It has been proved that there is a connection between a person’s personal performance, and the temperature of the immediate surroundings.
An air conditioned environment will improve your performance and energy levels, and more importantly air conditioning can help those who suffer from asthma and allergies, simply because these units provide cool air inside allowing windows and doors to remain closed, thus preventing exposure to outside triggers such as air pollution, which can cause allergic reactions.
Portable air conditioning in fact all air conditioning removes hot and damp air from indoors and transfers it out doors via a hose in the case of the portables, of course the split system will discharge the heat with excess humidity by the external condenser unit.
For the layman the things to consider when investing in portable air conditioners, is first and foremost check the product specifications such as BTUs and EERs, BTUs or British Thermal Units are the best indicator of what air conditioner you should buy, the higher the BTU value, the stronger the air conditioner is, thus the smaller the room the fewer BTUs needed.
EER stands for ‘Energy Efficiency Ratio’ which is measured in accordance with the Energy Information household Air Conditioners Regulations 2005. A higher EER rating is preferable, but obviously reflects the price of the unit, but a thing to consider, the higher the EER rating, the cheaper the long term running costs compared to a unit with a similar cooling capacity but will have a lower EER rating.
A spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists based in Sussex, on the south Coast of the UK said “some people do not want the hassle of installation, and turn to the portable units, and of course we can advise all consumers about BTUs and EERs, which will be fit for purpose in the particular area for cooling or indeed heating, we have a wide range of portable air conditioning units and our prices are second to none, most of our units are ready for immediate delivery”
