If choosing a central air conditioner or a portable air cooler, it’s good to bear in mind size and efficiency. In doing so, you’ll find an AC unit that suits your home and room space perfectly. When selecting your air conditioner, consider the following:

Do air conditioners use a lot of electricity?

Cost will depend mostly on your AC’s size and energy efficiency. For example, look at your AC’s rating. ‘A’ means it’s more efficient at circulating cold air in your room and possibly more cost-effective. As well, if your air conditioning unit is a larger, central one, the average watt consumed will be around 3000 and 3500.

Does an air conditioner unit need to be vented outside?

Absolutely. Otherwise, it’s counterproductive to run an AC without properly venting out all the trapped moisture and warm air. Venting your AC means your system won’t overheat, the risk here being that an unvented AC would circulate warm air and not cool your home. If you’ve a windowless air conditioner, look for an exhaust pipe or hose as this helps to pull out any warmth or moisture.

How long do air conditioners last?

With proper maintenance and regular checkups, your trusty air conditioning unit can last an average of 15-20 years!

However, if you notice your air con is simply no longer working, little air is coming out of the vents, or it’s only warm air circulating, it might be time to consider repairing completely or replacing your old unit.
