Air conditioning 101

Summer is just around the corner, and if you live on the West Coast, it already feels like it has arrived. If you keep it cool inside you have a great escape when you need a break from the heat outside, so a great air conditioner is a must. But with the varieties of air conditioners on the market today and all those BTU’s to choose from, buying one can be tricky. Read on to help you learn which one will work best for your home.

Why upgrading your air conditioner will make you a happier person

I’m one of those people that tend to run hot. Yup, it’s true. I’m that person wearing a tank top in May when the rest of the city is clad in spring jackets. I’m that person who is lobster-red at and dripping in sweat five minutes into a cardio class at the gym while everyone else remains cool and dry. And now that spring has arrived and the sun has decided to pay us a visit once again, I am that person sweltering in an apartment that features fantastic windows; all of which face west. Needless to say, air conditioning and I are friends.

Cool it now – Here’s your guide to choosing an Air...

    When the temperatures hit 30 degrees in the house, it’s officially time to start using the air conditioner. I remember being completely confused the first time I went out to buy one, but after brushing up a bit on the ins and outs of air conditioners, I was ready to pick the best one for my house. So how do you know which type of air conditioner is right for you?

What you need to know about window air conditioners

We’ve been putting it off because the temperatures haven’t really hit the 30’s yet, but the time has come to think about how you plan on staying cool this summer. If you want to keep a room or two chilly but don’t want to freak out when you see your energy bill, a window air conditioning unit is a great choice.

Chill out this summer with a portable air conditioner

Portable air conditioners are an amazing home appliance for a number of reasons. They can be moved from one room to the other, so you don’t have to hover in one cool room and ignore the rest of your house when it gets hot outside. Portable air conditioners are also self-contained, so you won’t have to permanently install them in your house.

Portable vs. Window Based AC Unit: Which One Should You Choose?

  It’s time to turn off the heat, pour the ice cold beer (lemonade for the kids, of course), and get that AC running on full blast.  But when it comes to purchasing an AC unit, there’s a dilemma: should you go window or portable?

Why we need Air Conditioning – not just for Comfort!

  As far back as the Ancient Romans there is evidence of air-conditioned homes. Water from the aqueducts were circulated through their walls of to cool them. However, the first electrical air conditioner was invented by Willis Carrier in 1902. He invented it not for comfort, but for a publishing company to keep down the temperature and humidity so the paper did not expand or contract. Since then air conditioning has become one of the most significant engineering achievements of the last century and has impacted the economy and the world in many ways. If you think comfort is the only reason you need air conditioning in your home, think again as there are many other benefits.
