Is the heat giving you a hard time? Find out if it’s worth investing in an air conditioner
It’s vacation time, the summer heat wave has hit Poland and made many people’s lives seriously miserable. In temperatures reaching forty degrees Celsius it is difficult to do anything. As many people now work from home, pleasant and comfortable working conditions are an absolute necessity, and it’s hard to talk about them when daytime temperatures are unbearable. What are the ways to lower the temperature at home and is it worth installing air conditioning in it? Find out!
How to cool down in hot weather?
First of all, do not open the windows. When the apartment is heated up and the temperature outside is lower, opening windows can actually help. Unfortunately in hot weather letting in hot air from outside only makes things worse. If you want to cool down on a hot day, cover the windows from the sun and close them to keep the temperature in the house from rising. Also avoid cooking, as the steam and heat from the pots will make the apartment very hot and there will be no way to lower the temperature. Opt for a salad or fresh fruit for dinner, and save pork chops for colder days. Light cold lunches won’t raise your body temperature either, making you more comfortable. Of course, cold drinks and ice are also a big help. A small fan can also provide relief, but such a fan won’t work well in large rooms and will tend to only work in a small range.
When is it worth investing in installing an air conditioner?
Air conditioning is a fantastic and very convenient solution in many cases. First of all, it will work great in large, open spaces where the air flow is unobstructed and air circulation can run smoothly, allowing the room to cool down quickly. If your home is enclosed, rooms are often separated from each other, air conditioning may not be as effective. For a living room combined with a dining room and kitchen, an air conditioner will work perfectly, but in an apartment in a block, where all rooms through the wall, air conditioners should be several
Virtually any place in the house, from which cool air can easily spread through the other rooms, will be suitable for installation of an air conditioner. Cieszyn, as well as other larger and smaller cities in Poland have local companies, dealing with air conditioners. Professionals in this field will certainly advise you on the best point in your home for an air conditioner
Cost of air conditioner maintenance and operation
When it comes to the cost of air conditioning, the biggest expense is the installation of the air conditioner itself. Its purchase and labor for setting up the equipment can cost up to several thousand zlotys, but later its maintenance comes down only to regular cleaning, filter replacement and payment for electricity that the air conditioner consumes. Aside from the sizable initial cost, air conditioning is an inexpensive home improvement. When it comes to air conditioner maintenance products, Airok – Professional Air Conditioner Chemistry offers a wide selection of products
Air conditioning is a very useful device, which has a significant impact on the comfort of household members in hot weather. Although in Poland it is only a few weeks a year, high temperatures make time seem to slow down, giving the impression that tropical weather lasts forever. If you are not a heat-loving person and the heat makes it difficult for you to function on a daily basis, opt for air conditioning.
