This blog post will provide advice on how you can decide on the most appropriate air conditioning unit for you and your home. We aim to address the budget, size and the initial set-up process involved.

We understand that a good air conditioning unit is a must-have, especially during the summer heat. No one wants to come home after a busy day to a hot home, instead, you want to be surrounded by a cool breeze and air conditioners can do that.

Make sure you get the right one for you with our tips.

Budget

Before you set off on our shopping spree, make sure you have a budget in mind. The budget will be some indication of what model you can get, which is a good idea to understand what features you want the most.

Layout

Another factor you should take into consideration before buying an air conditioner is the location you want it to be in, in your home. There are different types of air conditioning units, including split AC, portable AC and window AC. The type of unit will indicate where you can place it in your home.

Measurements should be taken, so you know how much space you have available.

Energy efficient

Check the Bureau of Energy efficiency rating, which is typically presented in the form of stars, to understand how energy efficient the model you are looking at is. If the model has a 5-star rating, this means that you could potentially save a hefty sum on your electricity bill each month.

Additional tips

Before making your decision, you should also look at the anti-bacteria filter, the heater and the auto-cleaning factor of the air conditioning unit. You should also aim to understand the different types of air conditioning units that are available and see if they are allowed by your landlord if you are renting.
