In most new buildings, air conditioning is standard. In older buildings, air conditioning can be hit or miss. Some older buildings have been retrofitted with split air conditioning systems and others rely on window and portable units to keep their occupants cool. Some have no air conditioning at all, forcing the people living and working inside to rely on open windows and fans to circulate the hot summer air.
Air conditioning has many benefits. Its most basic benefit is the physical comfort and control over the environment it provides. For people living and working inside a building, air conditioning provides numerous physical and mental health benefits. These include:
Air conditioning is also good for the objects kept in a home or commercial building, like wooden furniture and electronic equipment. Extreme heat can cause these items and their components to warp and degrade.
The right type of air conditioning system for your home or building depends on your cooling needs, your budget, and the size of the space you need to cool. Types of air conditioning system you can install in your building include:
Your air conditioning system should be serviced at least once each year. Regular servicing will keep it running efficiently, which will save you money on your utility bill.
