How does air conditioning affect the environment?
How does air conditioning affect the environment? It’s a question we get asked from time to time and deserves an answer.
In short, air conditioning used at the correct temperature setting and properly maintained is an efficient way not only to cool your home or office but to heat it in the colder months too.
Air conditioning system manufacturers have made significant reductions in their equipment’s energy consumption, so they are not only cheaper for you to run from a cost perspective but their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions has been significantly reduced and continues to decline all the time.
New regulations put in place around the world mean that ozone-depleting refrigerants will soon be a thing of the past. Good news for a hot country like Australia!
So, if you have a large home, office or retail space, then a modern ducted air conditioning system is one of the most efficient ways to cool (and heat) your house or building. In smaller areas, a quality wall-mounted split-system is worth considering.
A well designed and maintained air conditioning system will not only have a minimum impact on the environment, but it will also cool your home and office efficiently and reduce costs.
