There are few modern inventions more tasked with creating a pleasant home environment than the air conditioner. Today, these systems are designed as being both cost-efficient and energy-efficient from the get-go, as many consumers do want to reduce their carbon footprint, but without having to brave the heat.
But of course, there are some notable differences in terms of the type of air conditioner that can provide the best solutions for your home, and be as green as possible. Let’s take a closer look into the subject.
In some cases, the most efficient air conditioner is the type that’s right for your home and that can keep the room cool without using too much power. Here are some things to consider when choosing an air conditioning system for your home:
– The size – size matters greatly for air conditioners. If it’s too large, the room can be left damp. If it’s too small, then it will have to work overtime to cool your home, meaning it uses more power;
– Programmable settings – modern air conditioners allow you to set the temperature you want within your house. When that temperature is reached, the air conditioner stops, and saves energy!
– Energy-saving settings – some air conditioners go even further to help you reduce your electricity bill and carbon footprint by turning off both the compressor and fan when the room is cool enough;
– The star rating – the star rating is a 1-5 rating of how power efficient the system is. 5 is the best of the best, while 1 generally does not use power very efficiently. Rating labels are placed right on the system.
While you have these criteria in mind, it’s also important to consider the different types of air conditioners, and how their power consumption can affect you:
– Window air conditioners – window ACs are a single outdoor unit and are a great option if you don’t have space for an indoor unit. Because of their placement, they are quiet and won’t disturb your home;
– Portable air conditioners – these systems look similar to a dehumidifier, and you can transport them from room to room based on where you want extra cool air;
– Reverse cycle air conditioner – this is a cooling and heating system. This is not a type of AC, but a style that’s considered the most efficient of the bulk;
– Split system air conditioners – these are the systems that come in 2 pieces (sometimes even more, in the cases of multi-split systems).
– Ducted systems – ducted air conditioners are a great option for large spaces, as the air is controlled through a series of ducts placed throughout the house.
