Most parts of Australia are expected to be warmer and drier up to April according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald. While it was confirmed that surface temperatures of the sea and the threat of El Niño has passed, most parts of the continent can expect temperatures higher than average because of the residual warmth.
Keeping Homes Comfortable
Fortunately, the warmth that Australia will feel doesn’t have to extend inside the home. Comfortable temperatures can be achieved by ensuring that the air conditioner functions well. The cooling system of your home worked harder during the past summer, and thus it likely needs some serious checking. Any issue, even one that is not immediately visible, can reduce the efficiency of the air conditioner. When that happens, the air conditioner works extra hard to meet your cooling needs – leading to higher bills. Moreover, a slight issue can easily turn to a severe (and expensive) one if not dealt with right away.
In case you need a replacement, you might want to look at cheap cooling options. There are several types of systems that you can choose from today.
If you are concerned about the environment, an ideal choice for you would be an evaporative cooling system. What exactly is it?
The principle used for this type of cooling system is the same as the process of perspiration cooling your body. When your sweat evaporates, it absorbs heat from your body, thus lowering your overall temperature. In an evaporative system, water is vaporised and the atmosphere inside a building cools down as a result.
What are the advantages?
This cooling system is dubbed by many as a “green” solution because it doesn’t use refrigerants. Another advantage is lower overall costs; both the purchase price and installation costs are cheaper compared to other kinds of air conditioning systems. Furthermore, it uses less electricity than other types to operate (up to 80% lower).
Other benefits include the full replacement of interior air every two minutes, allowance for opening windows or doors, full ventilation (i.e., driving out stale air and odours), and maintaining a good humidity level inside the house.
If you want to have evaporative cooling installed for your house, it’s best to tap the services of an experienced cooling company like Mode Heating & Cooling, as such a firm can address your concerns and questions.
