Air conditioners have become a standard fixture in every home or office that you see and ducted air conditioning is widely used for large buildings or houses. Depending on the conditions and requirements, an evaporative cooler might take the place of a standard air conditioner, or you may see an all-weather A/C that can handle both heating and cooling!
The fact is an air conditioning service is the best way to keep your area comfortable, whether you are at home or at work. The improvements in technology mean that there are new devices available that consume less energy and work more efficiently, so they are no longer treated as a major expenditure as they were a few years earlier.
How Have Air Conditioners Improved Over Time?
Even as close as a decade back, an air conditioner was considered a luxury item or a ‘big purchase’ since these used to be really expensive to buy. The running cost was also really high as the old units consumed a lot of energy for their task and you could expect exorbitant electricity bills if you used it all day.
These days, the units that are available are designed to use less energy as well as be more effective at temperature control. There are also more options like humidity control, anti-bacterial filters, automatic adjustment (to ambient conditions) and much more. The A/C has become a highly intelligent device that can pretty much run itself!
The addition of features that can help prevent the escape of cool or warm air, like weatherproofing, to a building makes the air conditioners even more successful. Larger buildings or homes that use ducted air conditioning also find that the running cost of a single large unit is lower than multiple smaller units, so this is becoming a very popular installation choice!
