Why should you consider replacing your air conditioning system?
We have mentioned a few reasons already but let’s delve into the nitty gritty of why we and many others alike think you should replace and upgrade your air conditioning. It’s not only knowing when and how to upgrade your air conditioning system but why this should be done in the first place.
Massively improved energy efficiency.
Modern air conditioning systems are designed to be much more energy-efficient than their older counterparts. By upgrading, you can reduce your carbon footprint and enjoy significant savings on your energy bills. As the world and more specifically the UK strives for energy efficiency on this long road to net zero by 2050, upgrading your aircon and refrigerant is a fantastic step.
Enhanced cooling performance.
Newer air conditioning systems boast advanced technology that provides better cooling performance, ensuring consistent comfort throughout your home. We have been lucky enough to install some amazing systems across both domestic and commercial properties. If you would like to find out more, please check out our case study page!
Improved indoor air quality.
New systems often come with advanced filtration technology, enhancing the indoor air quality by removing dust, allergens, and pollutants. This is crucial for houses and offices where occupants suffer from breathing illnesses such as asthma.
Reduced environmental impact.
Similarly to the improved energy efficiency point we have already mentioned, the older air conditioning units may use refrigerants that are harmful to the environment. Specifically, units that were made prior to 2010 most likely use R22 refrigerant. It was discovered that the chemicals that makeup R22 are detrimental to the ozone layer.
Since 2004 it has been banned for use in new equipment in the UK and since 1st January 2015 it have been illegal to use R22 to main or repair your air conditioning but some systems still may be in use. Upgrading to a newer system allows you to use eco-friendly refrigerants, reducing your environmental impact and helping to decarbonise your property.
Increased property value.
If you’re planning to sell your home in the future, a new and efficient air conditioning system can be a selling point and potentially increase your property’s value. Especially the green credentials that come with this in the eco conscious world that we are currently living in.
