Guide to a Air conditioning Unit


Choosing the correct unit


Choosing the correct air conditioning unit for you application, it is recommended that a proper assessment is done by an establisher air conditioning dealer. Not only are there different types of units on the market, but sizing is very important. Should a too small unit be installed, it will run continuously and electricity consumption will be high. This can also result in failure of the unit. On the other hand a too large unit will switch on and off at short intervals which also causes higher electricity consumption. Therefore choosing the right size unit, will give a longer lifespan and also control air temperature more effectively.
