5 misconceptions about air conditioning
Every year in France, tens of thousands of air conditioners and heat pumps are installed. Each summer, they are more and more envious. Most are equipped with a reversible function, which also makes it possible to spend the winter warm. However, these devices are sometimes (unfairly) criticized. Don't be fooled by these 5 misconceptions about air conditioning!
Air conditioning does not allow for a uniform temperature in the accommodation
It's quite the opposite ! The air conditioning prevents hot air from stagnating at the top of the accommodation by constantly stirring the air. In addition, devices equipped with Inverter technology can perfectly stabilize the temperature and provide maximum thermal comfort.
Air conditioning makes you sick
Although it is advisable to maintain your filters regularly, running an air conditioner does not make you sick! Yet it is often wrongly held responsible for colds and allergies. Contrary to popular belief, an air conditioner can dry and clean the air by driving out the most allergenic particles: dust, pollen or even mites.
Air conditioning is energy intensive
This could be the case on old models, but it is no longer relevant! Indeed, the new devices are energy efficient. By way of comparison, reversible systems can consume -30% to -60% of energy compared to traditional heating. To avoid any unpleasant surprises, look at the device's energy label before buying it. The closer it gets to A, the less it will consume. An essential criterion for making a purchase that is both ecological and economical!
Air conditioners make a lot of noise
This review also seems obsolete. Indeed, in recent years, manufacturers have taken this parameter into account to offer more and more discreet and silent devices. You can install them in rooms without any problem. You will sleep soundly! In addition, many air conditioners are equipped with a silent mode for maximum comfort.
Air conditioning is very expensive
More good news: prices are falling! To face the strong competition in the sector, manufacturers offer air conditioning at very competitive prices. However, they remain very variable depending on the characteristics of the model. For an electric air conditioner, it is generally necessary to count between 400 € (for the first prices) and 5000 € (for the high-end models). Heat pumps, on the other hand, are more expensive (between € 6,000 and € 13,000), but they are eligible for the Energy Savings Premium. Enough to make significant savings on your air conditioning!
So don't hesitate to take the plunge and invest, according to your needs and your budget, in air conditioning. You will only reap the benefits!
