Choosing The Right Cooling For Your Space
With the weather warming up and the sun coming out of hiding, you may be left overheating in your home if you haven’t properly prepared your cooling solutions. With so many different options available on the market it can become confusing trying to pick one. We’ve put together a handy guide to help you select the right type of cooling you need, whether that’s a fan or air conditioner.
Which Room Do You Need It For?
Most domestic cooling devices – such as air conditioners and fans – can be used in every room in your home, however, some are more suited to certain spaces than others. If you are looking to cool down your office, living room or dining room, an air conditioner may be better suited as this will cool the surrounding air, allowing the cooling power to surpass corners and obstacles. For a bedroom or playroom, a fan would be an efficient option as they will create the perfect breeze in the room.
What Size Is Your Space?
Measuring the size of the room in which you want to use the cooling device will allow you to narrow down your options; by determining your room dimensions it allows you to find out what kind of power you require. For air conditioners, they usually have the BTU listed with the affective area being listed in m2, making selecting one as easy as possible. Fans, on the other hand, are universal and can cover very large spaces or be used in small rooms depending on their speed levels.
Do You Need It To Be Portable?
Cooling devices can either be portable or fixed but, between us, it is much better to have a portable one so that you can use it anywhere you can plug it in. All our fans and air conditioners are made to be portable so they can be used anywhere in the home or even taken on trips away.
What Do You Need It For?
Of course, you are going to need your device to keep you cool, however, do you just need basic cooling or also additional functionality such as dehumidifying action and advanced cooling? Fans are a great basic cooling device, offering an effective stream of air to cool you down. If you want to really drop the temperature in a room and maybe even remove some of the moisture from it, then an air conditioner would be best as it does this with extreme ease.
What Is Your Budget?
The price of fans and air conditioners differ due to the different levels of technology featured in them. For a cheaper cooling solution, pedestal fans would be your best bet as air conditioners are considerably higher in price. Our fans are all under £70 making them extremely affordable, but keeping with our affordability theme, our air conditioners start from £199 which is also a great price for such a great piece of cooling equipment.
