Heating Efficiency

Did you know that an air conditioner is very efficient at heating?

Air Conditioner vs Conventional Heater

A conventional heater has a one-to-one power output, meaning for every 1 kW of heat required, you use 1 kW of electrical power. An air conditioner, however, uses 1 kW of electrical power for every 3 kW of heat, making it 300% more efficient than a conventional heater. For more on this, check our article on efficient heating systems.

Importance of Filter Servicing & Disinfection

An aircon filter is the first line of defense in capturing and killing airborne particles and germs, including microscopic dust, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. By removing these particles from the air we breathe daily, we give our immune system a better chance to fight off infectious viruses.

Regular filter servicing and disinfection are crucial for maintaining good air quality. Learn why this is important in our article on air conditioner maintenance.

Earth-Friendly Inverter Technology

An inverter compressor operates at a percentage of full power as needed to maintain a set temperature. It differs from fixed-speed compressors where the compressor cycles ON/OFF. By only using the needed power, inverter compressors save energy and keep the set temperature change minimal. Read more about inverter technology benefits.
