The four questions to ask before you buy a new air conditioner.
Ask which air conditioner will best suit your home or office – think about influencing factors such as insulation, windows and the number of rooms you want cooled.
Ask if the air conditioning system’s kilowatt (kW) size is the right capacity for your needs – this could save you a lot of money in the long run.
Ask about the air conditioner’s efficiency – this should be displayed on the star energy rating label on the product. More stars means it costs less to run and is more energy efficient.
Ask about installation – air conditioners are likely to contain refrigerants that are harmful to the environment. Make sure your system is installed by an appropriately licensed technician.
