Your room and system size

One of the most important factors is the sizing of your room and air conditioning unit. Air conditioners come in different sizes, for different spaces. Choosing the right sized heat pump is important to ensure optimal comfort levels, this is especially important when you’re choosing a unit that provides heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Location, room size and insulation levels in a room are all factors that determine which size unit should be installed.

Speed settings

The speed of the fan in your unit should be adjustable to enable you to control how much air will flow around your room and at what speed. Many units also offer quieter night-time settings, which is ideal to cool your space in the night ensuring you have the right conditions for a great sleep.

Other features

Air conditioning units come with different features, some can cool spaces even in the hottest environments, others have been developed and engineered specially to use less energy power than ever before, some with built-in Wi-Fi controls, ones that prevent dust and direct build-up on the inner surface so it stays clean all year round.
