Air Conditioning’s Sustainability

As people become increasingly concerned about the planet and environment, sustainable, green solutions are becoming very popular. The significant growth in the use of air conditioning in Australia has caused many to begin considering the idea of eco-friendly or sustainable air conditioning solutions. We at Endeavour Air Conditioning get many enquiries from clients that are interested in these systems. Here is some information about them.

Some Sustainable Air Conditioning Options

There are many different eco-friendly HVAC options, such as:

  • Solar-powered air conditioning systems
  • Geothermal heat pumps
  • Ice battery power

Solar-powered AC units and geothermal heat pumps use natural alternatives to systems that are artificially-powered. The latter circulates naturally cooled air from underneath the earth’s surface and solar-powered systems utilise the sun’s power which also reduces the cost of running the air conditioning.

Ice battery power units are a little different. They make ice in the night-time, which is when the air is much colder. The ice then helps to reduce the total amount of power required to cool buildings. This form of sustainable air conditioning is currently in the experimental stages. But it can save property owners a significant amount of money once the technology is fully developed and the systems are launched in the market. 

The Importance Of Environmental Sustainability Air Conditioning

There are many distinct benefits to opting for sustainable air conditioning systems, such as:

  • Reduction in Energy Bills- These systems need less power to operate their pumping system and to cool the air. They conserve energy and cool air to be used later. Most people in Australia are habituated to using air-conditioning and being able to save money on these bills becomes an appealing option.
  • Reduction in Harmful Emissions- When you use less energy, you are also reducing the total amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere by power plants in the local area. Air conditioning units also have their own emissions and sustainable solutions either eliminate or reduce those emissions entirely.
  • Increased Lifespan- Geothermal heat pumps last much longer than window units or conventional central air systems. According to rough estimates, geothermal heat pumps can easily last for up to 30 years because they don’t have moving parts.

Some AC manufacturers offer 50-year warranties on specific geothermal heat pump system components. All parts of the geothermal heat pump system is installed indoors, which protects them from the elements, extending its life.

These systems also have a quieter operation and are an excellent long term investment. For any more information about most sustainable air conditioning, feel free to call Endeavour Air Conditioning at (02) 9199 0372 or send us your queries through this Contact Us form, and we will respond shortly.

Tips To Choose the Right Air Conditioning Units

Choosing the perfect air conditioning unit can be quite challenging. To help you make a well-informed decision, here are a few useful tips from the specialists at Endeavour Air Conditioning.

The Types of Air Conditioners

There are three basic types of air conditioners that you can choose from:

The Split System

This air conditioner is perfect for compact spaces, and cooling or heating rooms in your house. In split system units, the compressor is set up outside your property, and a separate indoor unit passes the air into your home.  The two main advantages of the split system are:

  • Economical – You are buying and setting up a single unit at a time. These systems are energy-efficient compared to other systems.
  • Selective – You can choose to install this system in any room.

The Multi-Split System

These systems require a single compressor to run several air conditioners throughout your house. The three main benefits of installing a multi-split system include:

  • Comfortable, convenient, and economical
  • The climate of each room can be controlled as needed
  • With a single outdoor compressor, you can select up to five individual units for rooms. This includes wall-mounted, duct-connected, celling-suspended, cassette-type, or floor-standing units.

Ducted

This air conditioning system offers all-in-one climate control. It has an outdoor unit and another indoor one with flexible ducting that effectively cools or heats your rooms via vents. Here are the advantages of ducted systems:

  • Can be tailor-fitted for a new or existing house
  • Quieter than other air conditioning units
  • Aside from the controller and grilles, the rest of the components are not visible.
  • Adds to the value of your property
  • You maximize energy efficiency
  • You can also zone-control your house.

Selecting the Right Air Conditioning Capacity

There are several factors that you have to take into account while calculating the exact capacity you require, it includes:

  • The size of your room – the height, length, and width
  • The size and positioning of the windows and glass doors. Large windows let in a lot of heat during summers
  • Insulation of the floor, walls, and ceiling
  • The type of room – living room, bedroom, or kitchen
  • Shading and curtains on the windows
  • The local climate

Besides, you will also have to choose whether you require an inverter or non-inverter model and whether you need cooling, heating, or both. Since there are so many aspects to consider while selecting an air conditioning unit, its best to get help from experts like us at Endeavour Air Conditioning.
