A Cold Winter In The UK Can Spell Trouble For The Vulnerable
Increases in prices for gas and electricity coupled with current Artic conditions in the UK mean that it is going to be a cold cold Winter for vulnerable groups such as the elderly.
With the prices of gas and electricity soaring in the UK has affected many people especially the vulnerable, the elderly and sick who struggle to keep up with prices. These people are struggling to pay the costs of heating a room let alone a home.
With recent price rises of over 6% for gas and electricity, consumers have found that bills are rising and adding huge amounts to an annual bill throughout the winter months. In the cold weather we have to keep warm, just as we have to keep cool in the very hot summer months.
Those who are struggling to keep warm are now looking for the most cost effective way to warm a home, and as winter is in full swing the need to heat a home becomes vital. More and more people are looking for units that combine heat with cooling all in the same unit.
Consumers will always look for the best value for money, and for those that feel the heat in the summer and feel the cold in the winter, are now considering just one unit that can cool and heat and what better appliance to fulfil these functions than portable air conditioning units (http://www.climachill.co.uk/
Everyone is talking about heat pump air conditioning, this is of course an alternative form of electrical heating, and furthermore it can offer more than 3 times more heat than a conventional electric heater. It is now becoming a well-known fact that if you put one kilowatt of electricity into a heat pump it produces about 3 kilowatt of heat out.
A portable air conditioner is perfect for those struggling with high bills coming across their doorstep every month. One unit can be moved wherever it is wanted for heating or cooling, thus only using where it is wanted. A plan to think about is close doors of rooms not used in the day, and for those home all day just place the unit in the living area, and at night move the unit to the bedroom for instant heating.
The mind-set of most people when air conditioning is mentioned is an appliance for cooling, this is not the case, today technology has changed all that, and with heat pumps on hot summer days the whole process can be changed to provide cooling at the switch of a button, thus portable air conditioners make sense to the frail and vulnerable who need to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but more importantly are cost effective.
A spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists located on the South Coast of the UK said “although we can install and fit all types of air conditioning we do recommend portable air conditioning as they are perfect on either a very cold day or a very hot one for instant heat and cooling”.
