This site will provide you with a comprehensive information about air conditioning that you need to know as an end user. Choosing a suitable air conditioner equipment and the rule-of-thumb in calculating the cooling or heating capacity for your rooms are provided for your convenience.
If you have the basics of electrical or mechanical knowledge, trouble shooting guide is also provided as a DIY tool for you to check out the systems before calling a qualified technician. Electrical safety tips is also provided here. Many a times, the solution to the problem is as simple as reconnecting a loose wiring or changing a contactor.
The development of air conditioning systems and refrigeration in the past few decades have provided comfort and convenience to our homes and the way we do things. It is now considered a basic necessity to have air conditioners and refrigerators in our homes.
The advancement in the field of electronics have changed the development of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technology.
More products have been designed to be more energy efficient and one that provides more comfort to the users by utilising the AC and DC inverter technology.
The inverter technology is increasingly been applied to the compressors, pumps and fan motors in the HVAC equipments.
We are sure all of us are concerned for mother nature. Take comfort that there are many development in the area of refrigerant that have drastically reduced the use of R-22 refrigerant to the more ozone friendly such as R134-a and R410A.
The latest preferred refrigerant that is in used is R32 which not only has zero Ozone Depletion Potential but also very low Global Warming Potential.
You can do your part by buying equipment that use ozone friendly refrigerant and energy efficient units. As demand for this type of units increased, the price will drop hence their production will increase. Look out for Energy Efficient and Ozone Friendly logos when you shop for your air conditioners. Find out the energy savings tips, Freon and its impact on the environment.
