How to Choose Air Conditioning Systems

We made a step by step guide that teaches how to choose the ideal air conditioner for your home or commercial area. Check it:

  1. Choose the type of air conditioning

To make your choice, take into account:

  • Space available for internal and external unit;
  • Ability to change the facade of the building or house;
  • Type of installation;
  • Number of rooms with air-conditioning (cooling and heating).
  • Split air conditioning
  • The split air conditioning is a system divided into two parts, the evaporator and the condenser. It is ideal for home use as it is very quiet and discreet. Available in cold version, hot / cold and also in multi version, it climaxes two or more environments.
  • Attention: installation should be performed by a certified technician.
  • 1) The evaporator is installed in the inner wall of the room, near the ceiling. It sucks air, filters, cools or warms and returns to the air-conditioned environment cooled by Franciscogardening.
  • 2) The condenser is installed outside. It has a compressor which pumps the refrigerant gas and transports the air inside out.
  • 3) The piping and the drain hose connecting the condenser to the evaporator through the refrigerant gas. The hose transports the water condensed out.
  • 4) The remote control allows you to access the functions of the evaporator distance.
  • Window conditioners
  • The window air conditioner is compact and has the lowest initial investment. Housed in a hole in the wall or will the window, you need to frame or support box to support and finish. If the window already has the support, it is possible to install without hiring third parties.
  • 1) The air conditioner is in the will of the window or the wall in a suitable support. It sucks the air, filters, cools or warms and returns to the environment. It is connected to the electric current with plug and socket.
  • 2) The remote control allows you to access the air conditioning functions away. Only for digital models.
  • Portable air conditioning
  • Ideal for rental or temporary premises of up to 20 m² and also homes and toppled or protected façade shopping areas. The portable air conditioner is unique equipment that needs specific tubing to the air outlet.
  • Air conditioning ceiling floor
  • The floor air conditioning ceiling system is divided into two parts, the evaporator and the condenser. It is ideal for commercial environments and offices over 50 m². Available in version cold and hot / cold.
  • 1) The evaporator is installed in the ceiling or floor environment. It sucks air, filters, cools or warms and returns to the air-conditioned environment.
  • 2) The condenser is installed outside. It has a compressor which pumps the refrigerant gas and transports the air inside out.
  • 3) The piping and the drain hose connect the condenser to the evaporator through the refrigerant gas. The hose transports the water condensed out.
  • 4) The remote control allows you to access the air conditioning functions.
  • Air conditioners, cassette
  • The air conditioning cassette is a split system in two parts, the evaporator and the condenser. The evaporator must be installed in the roof liner, making the distribution of the most versatile air.
  • 1) The evaporator is installed in the lining of the ceiling. It sucks air, filters, cools or warms and returns to the air-conditioned environment.
  • 2) The condenser is installed outside of homes and businesses. It has a fixed speed compressor which pumps the refrigerant and carries air from the inside to the outside.
  • 3) The piping and drain hose connect the two and carry the refrigerant gas.The hose transports the air from the water condensed out.
  • 4) The remote control allows you to access the air conditioning functions away.
  • Air conditioning reverse
  • More advanced split version . The inverter technology is more comfortable and allows you to save up to 40% of energy, since it has variable speed compressor. Available in cold version, hot / cold and also in multi version, which climaxes two or more environments.
  • Economy and comfort: the variable speed compressor (Invert) adjusts the motor frequency as needed by the environment and ensures stable and no changes temperature. The fixed speed models (conventional) always work 100%. The mode on / off consumes more power and generates peaks in temperature.
  • Air conditioning curtain
  • Thermal insulation for offices and businesses that need to leave the doors open. In addition to isolating the temperature, the air conditioning curtain also deters insects, smoke and odors. It is available in various sizes and must be installed inside the room, above the door.
  • 1) The air curtain is installed in the wall from inside. It sucks air and creates a current which prevents the exchange with the external environment.
  • 2) The remote control allows you to turn on and off the curtain from distance.
  • 2. Calculate the power required
  • Measure the room and multiply the width by the depth to discover the area in square meters.
  • 3×4 = 12m

To cool or heat the environment are needed between 600 and 800 BTUs per square meter.

Some factors can influence the calculation:

  • Exposure to the sun;
  • Number of windows and doors;
  • Quality thermal insulation;
  • Number of persons in the environment;
  • Number of electrical appliances in use.
  • Foot height.

What is BTU?

And British unit (British Thermal Unit) used to measure the cooling capacity of an apparatus.

  1. Compare the noise level

Each air conditioning model has a different sound intensity ranging between 30 and 60 decibels.

Procel Seal is awarded only to the most efficient appliances category.

The National Energy Conservation Label is compulsory for window air conditioners and split. It indicates the level of energy efficiency and the monthly consumption of each device. (Insert image of an air conditioner table)
