This spring the weather has been extremely warm and mild and with summer approaching air conditioning systems will soon be working hard to keep our homes cool and fresh.
Dual fuel systems – essentially those which are combined Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems – can provide an energy efficient and cost effective solution, ensuring that they are able to achieve a comfortable temperature throughout the year, on the hottest of summer days or on the coldest of winter nights.
These systems consist of a heat pump that uses refrigeration gas to circulate around the unit meaning there are no fossil fuels burnt, this is not only good for the environment it is also cheaper to use 1/3 the cost of gas. The heat pump can be used for heating as well as cooling. It works by supplying cold or hot water to fan coil heaters, underfloor pipes or convector radiators, making each room ambient temperature warm or cool. The system can also be run on silent mode, when used inside bedrooms.
If you are thinking about installing or replacing your air conditioning or heating system in your property with a heat pump system or air conditioning system, we have a few tips below:-
- Select a HVAC system which is suitable for the size of your home. The size of your unit is important; if it is too small it could be more expensive to run as it will need to use more energy.
- Use a professional. If your HVAC system is not installed properly, it will not perform effectively. This means that it will reduce its efficiency and will be more expensive to maintain. Our team are fully trained and experienced in installing all different types of heating, ventilation and air conditioning units. We will help you pick the one that is right for your property and our team of designers will check and guarantee the complete system.
- Be smart. With today’s technology you can now control and direct the air flow into particular rooms, which allows you to focus on keeping specific parts of your home at the perfect temperature. This is more energy efficient: better for the planet and for your wallet. With our systems you can down load an app which enables you to select the ideal temperature for every room of your house all from your smart phone or computer.
