It’s time to break out the jandals because summer is just around the corner!
And as climate change pumps up the world’s temperature year on year, this summer is set to be one of the hottest on record.
Good news if you love the beach, barbeques and beers… bad news if you’re stuck indoors with kids, pets and work.
So how do you beat the heat this summer?
The answer is simple, cost-effective, and gets to work immediately; an air conditioning heat pump.
Why invest in an air conditioning heat pump?
Convenience for one.
There’s nothing quite like air conditioning to cool a room in minutes, if not seconds!
Coming home after a hard day’s work, the last thing you need is a hothouse that’s been baking in the sun all day.
One push of a button and there’s cold air flowing through your home, bringing your environment to the perfect temperature to relax and unwind.
On top of that, air conditioning/heat pumps save you money on your energy bills, filter out all those nasty allergens in the air. When summer is over and the cold nights return, they heat up your home instead of cooling it!
How much energy does air conditioning use?
Okay, we said heat pumps save you money on your energy bills, but where’s the evidence?
Well, the Government’s own energy website explains how heat pumps are the cheapest most efficient way to heat your home, costing even less than burning wood!
Obviously there are different variables to take into account, such as the size of your heat pump, type, how big your home is, but there are plenty of online tools to help you work out how much you would save if you made the switch.
Most homes can run an air conditioning/heat pump for less than a dollar per day!
Are they difficult to maintain?
Not, absolutely not.
While the technology behind them is pretty advanced, cleaning and maintaining them is relatively simple.
Keeping your indoor unit clean and free from dust and dirt will help keep ensure your heat pump is working at its optimal best.
A dusting and quick wipe once a week is all it takes, but like all machines, they still need to be serviced every couple of years by a professional.
If your air conditioning unit isn’t blowing as much as it used to, not cooling as quickly as it once did, or there are strange musty/damp smells coming from it, then it’s time to call in a professional to have a look.
An air conditioning/heat pump is an investment for your home and should be looked after. If regularly serviced and cleaned, it will last for years.
Control your environment with the touch of a button
Modern air conditioning/heat pumps come with a range of bells and whistles to make life even easier for you.
Mitsubishi Electric’s range comes with a Wi-Fi option that allows you to control the unit from your phone.
And if your first thought was not having to get up off the sofa while watching Netflix, we like your style, but it also does so much more.
Controlling your aircon from your phone means you can switch it on as you’re heading home, giving you a nice cool living room to arrive back to.
Make summer heat bearable with cool air conditioning
Trying to sleep on a cold night is easy. An extra blanket or a warmer pair of pyjamas and boom! Sorted.
Trying to sleep on a hot, stuffy night is a different matter. Tossing and turning, sweat dripping off you, can’t open a window because the mosquitoes will get in…
That’s when air conditioning pays for itself.
A heat pump cools you down at the touch of a button, costs next to nothing to run, and can be set to your perfect temperature.
And the best part is, you’ll get to use it all year round.
When winter is here and those cold nights are frosting up the windows, your heat pump once again comes to the rescue.
