Here at CK Electrical, Solar & Air-Conditioning we love to keep our clients feeling COOL in summer and WARM in winter.
We have all noticed over the years that the summers are getting hotter for longer. Brisbane’s hot months last from November – early-March, with high temperatures and humidity. During the height of summer, temperatures can reach as high as 40-45°C, with the average floating around 31-33°C.
Getting the right size system for your home is important. An oversized air conditioner presents a number of problems that can be crippling and result in needing to replace the unit years before its time. You’ll also be wasting energy during the short period when it does run. As a result of this increased level of moisture produced by an oversized air conditioner, the air quality in your home can deteriorate. This is a problem for anyone with asthma or any other respiratory disease.
An under sized unit also has its own issues as it never completely completes a cycle. Under sizing a unit will provide cheaper upfront cost but will cost more money when it comes to your electricity bill every quarter. Running more often and not completing a cycle add strain to the outdoor compressor, putting more wear and tear on the unit than it requires in turn giving you a sorter life span of your beloved system.
