Air Conditioning Becoming A Priority In UK New Homes
Britons have never really needed to consider installing air conditioning in their own homes, having said that it is now becoming a priority, and an increasing number of new build homes, seem to now come with air conditioning as standard.
In the USA air conditioning is seen as an absolute necessity for most buildings, and according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, about one sixth of all the electricity generated in the USA is used to cool buildings.
In spite of the rush to better insulate our leaky housing in the UK, and tighter building regulations in place will certainly help this situation, we are seeking ways to keep our homes comfortably cool in periods of hot weather.
In countries that have much hotter climates like Canada, America and Australia, an air conditioner is a must-have commodity and is seen in almost every home and business, but in the UK, we have yet to embrace fully the benefits of air conditioning and it still tends to be only big businesses around the country that have it installed.
It isn’t only on sweltering hot days that air conditioning units can help, these days it can help with both heating and cooling spaces whether in the home or office, and is ideal to keep an office at the correct temperature that can help with the workers accuracy and performance, furthermore many businesses need air conditioning to keep their server room cool, simply because if encountering overheating issues can experience downtime if not addressed.
Most air conditioning systems today also offer energy efficient heating, and can be run in air conditioning mode or heating mode, simply because heat pump technology means that the system can be run in reverse, it is a matter of heat transfer from one place to another in order to provide air conditioning or heating.
Most consumers will think this will raise their energy bills instead of lowering them, this is not the case, and most air conditioning experts will explain to their customers that this method of heating is much more efficient than standard heating as the input of electrical energy will ultimately be four times more efficient and will be four times cheaper to run, an example will be that you are only paying for 1kw of electric power in order to receive 4kw of heating, now that is a result.
If you are looking for energy efficient heating then you should seriously consider having an air conditioning system installed by a reputable air conditioning specialist, and you will have the added bonus of being cool in the summer.
A spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists based on the south coast of the UK and offering solutions to consumers across the country said “we only install air conditioning systems which have the heat pump technology so our customers can be assured that when it comes to winter they will have an energy efficient method of heating the home whilst also reducing their carbon footprint”.
Which ever way the British public look at it everyone needs to get their act together, summers are getting hotter and winters are getting colder, this is a simple fact of nature, we need to consider making air conditioning units a priority in the home and office and be totally energy efficient.
