How to Choose the Right AC for Your Bedroom

how to choose the right acHave you been saving to buy a new air conditioner for your Bedroom? But before you buy, ask yourself, have you done your homework? In case you haven’t, don’t worry, we have done it for you.

For a pleasant summer inside the house, you need an AC but the one that is energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and is capable of cooling the space. Here we have listed a few things that should be kept in mind while buying a new AC for your bedroom.

1. Calculate BTU: BTU stands for British thermal units. It is the measurement used to calculate the size of the AC for maintaining a pleasant temperature inside the room. There are BTU calculators available for free online. Just type in a BTU calculator and insert the required values such as the size of the room, insulation type, number of people using the room, and more. 

2. Dehumidifier: The AC that you chose to buy should have a feature called dehumidifier for removing excess moisture from the air during the rain. The dehumidifier is also helpful in preventing fungus and bacteria growth.

3. Dust Filters: The AC is not only a room cooling device. It also helps keep the room dust-free. Dust filters catch tiny dust mites and particles in the air.

4. Heater: AC with heaters can help the room warm in the winter season. If you are lucky to find an AC with a heater, go for it and have it installed.

5. Types of AC: There are different types of ACs available in the market, such as window AC, split AC, inverter AC, and more. Talk to the AC installer and retailer to know the type of AC that is effective and efficient.

You can always ask your friends to suggest the type of AC for your space. Also, please read about the latest ACs in the market, their reviews, and the one that uses less electricity and is efficient.

Why Offices Need Proper Ventilation

We need homes properly ventilated for our kids and elders to live a healthy life inside. People working in offices also need proper ventilation to prevent health hazards that may occur owing to suffocation in the workplace. A poorly ventilated office can be a house to allergens causing asthma, strokes, and allergies. Besides, the indoor air quality of the offices does have an essential effect on the work efficiency of individual employees.

Ventilation removes bad quality air that may be caused by machines and people. The fresh or good quality air is added to the workplace, promoting a greater feeling of well-being, which, in turn, boosts productivity.

The heat produced by computer, light, and electronics is often a problem when left unmanaged. Offices with large glazed areas with abundant sunlight have trapped heat that needs to be cooled down through proper ventilation systems. Offices use various types of ventilation systems to ensure a healthy working environment inside the workplace. The methods include:

  1. Natural Ventilation through Advanced Control System: More offices are now using an advanced control system to ventilate the workplace naturally. Through the advanced ventilation, the external fresh air is directed to the office.
  2. Smoke Control: In incidents of fire smoke, ventilation helps emit smoke from the staircase, corridors, and atriums, to allow safer exit. Installing smoke sensors and alarms can help prevent damages to life and property.
  3. Window Automation: These days, offices come occupied with automating window opening systems. Whenever the indoor air quality is sensed bad or poor by the system, it automatically opens up the windows allowing fresh air to slip into the workplace.

There are many ways for you to ventilate your office. Especially when you have plenty of valuable equipment or lots of staff and employees working in your office, you have to ensure that the area is well-ventilated.
