Air Conditioning

Degrees Ahead Residential

Types of Heating & Cooling

An air conditioning system takes in air and checks its current condition. This consists of the airs humidity (how damp it is) and its temperature. The machine then uses a heat exchanger to cool the air and remove water vapor via condensation in the same way a cup full of ice sitting in a hot room condenses water vapor from the air to reduce or increase the ambient air conditions.

Having someone standing beside you waving a large fan over you to keep you cool is out of the question for most, however, buying a heat pump/air conditioner is something that everyone can afford.

The reason it is affordable is because of efficiency. Sure, there is an upfront cost, but the running costs are substantially lower than burning wood in a fireplace, using an energy inefficient electric fan or oil filled bar heater.

You light your fire, push in the wood and then pray. The wood burns, releasing water vapor (raising the humidity over that magic 55% number) and heats only a local part of your house. A heat pump, on the other hand, can be ducted to heat all of your rooms and only deliver clean, dry air to the areas that need it. Daiken heat pumps get the temperature to the right level, quickly and then maintain it at minimal cost. A fireplace has no such smarts.

Why Get Air Conditioning?

Allergies can be a problem in many homes and air conditioning is a cheap way to protect your family from harmful microorganisms in the air.

Not many people know that home allergens such as dust mites thrive in a warm temperature and high humidity environment and let’s face it, that’s most peoples homes. But you can fight back at dust mite populations, by keeping your home humidity down below 55%. Dust mites have trouble surviving when the humidity is lower than 40%. Even a small reduction in your home’s humidity can make a big difference to the size and rate of growth of dust mite populations.

If you add a ducted ventilation system throughout a house you can drive wet air out of your home completely, and warm (or cool) your home at the same time giving you a healthier living environment.

It is also possible to have air filtered using an air conditioner to remove pollen, ash (from tobacco smoke and fireplaces) and dust so that allergy sufferers and people with asthma are able to greatly reduce their symptoms. So choose one of our Diaken Air Conditioning solutions for your home today and make your home a healthy place to live.
