Can Air Con Be Environmentally Friendly?

Card image cap

The United Kingdom has, historically, been a temperate region, with little to no demand for air con installations. In years gone by, while we’d have our occasional hot summers, the need for air con was generally more commercial with air con installations in the home being regarded less as a necessity and more as a luxury.

Times, however, are changing and as global temperatures rise, so to will the need for air conditioning. That being said, if people use more electricity to cool down their homes, then that will inevitably lead to more fossil fuels being burned which, in turn, will only worsen the problem of climate change.

It’s a real catch-22 situation, or at least it can seem that way at first glance. Here at AC Instals however, we believe it is possible to mitigate some of the effects of climate change without contributing further to the problem and today we’d like to talk about how.

What Are Heat Pumps?

If you’re looking for environmentally friendly air con installations then you should start by looking into heat pumps. Though not practical for every property, many properties can get serious benefits from using heat pumps to regulate the temperature in their homes.

The advantage of heat pumps is that they minimise the energy going in, instead aiming to utilise as much of the heat that is already in your home to better effect. And while they do require some energy to function as a cooling system, they are far more efficient than traditional air conditioning installations.

Furthermore, installing heat pumps might even lower your annual energy usage. This is because, as well as cooling your house in the summer, they can also heat your house in the winter. Once again, they are far more efficient than traditional central heating systems and thus far better for the environment.

All in all, heat pumps are not only better for the environment, but they’ll also save you money on your heating bill.

Tailored Air Con Installations

Speaking of efficiency, another place where many people and businesses alike could significantly improve the energy effectiveness of their air con installations is in the type and scale of air conditioning they choose to implement.

Put simply, different-sized air con installations are appropriate to different environments. Attempting to overwork a small unit or underwork a large one will never be as effective as finding the right unit for the job. That’s why we recommend consulting air con installation experts to find out which unit would be best for you.

Better Health Is Better For The Environment

Lastly, while it might not seem significant, we wanted to take a moment to mention that a good air con system is good for your health and that, in turn, is better for the environment. Keeping as many people as possible in a happy and healthy condition will help to keep all our systems running effectively which is always more energy efficient in the long run.
