How Do Air Conditioners Work?

An air conditioner works by drawing heat energy from the inside of your home and expelling it to the outside. As heat is removed, the cooler air is blown back into your home. This process is repeated until your home reaches your desired temperature as set on your thermostat. This is a simplified explanation. Air conditioners are complex systems that comprise various mechanisms and processes. But you don’t need to be an expert in thermodynamics… Continue Reading

How Does Heat Affect The Mind?

When we think about how hot rooms can affect productivity, we often think about the physical discomfort involved in sticky clothes and sweaty armpits. Being uncomfortable can lead to irritability and lack of focus, and these are certainly justified reasons for installing air conditioning in a workplace or similar environment. However, what is lesser known, and yet perhaps even more detrimental, is how a hot room can directly affect the cognitive function of the brain…. Continue Reading

What is the Difference Between Air Conditioning and Ventilation?

  If like many, you believe that ‘air conditioning’ and ‘ventilation’ are interchangeable terms, you’d be greatly mistaken. In fact, ventilation and air conditioning aren’t just a little different, but they actually provide completely different functions. It can be completely impractical to use a ventilator in an environment where an air conditioner is needed, and vice versa. In this article, we will be discussing the difference between the two and highlighting which situations call for… Continue Reading

What Are The Best Portable Air Conditioners?

Portable air conditioners have historically been seen as ‘the five-year-old’ of the air conditioning world. They’re disruptively noisy, use an obscene amount of energy, and are deceptively heavy when lifted up from the ground. And yet you still tell all your friends you love them. With that being said, portable air conditioners have continually evolved in an attempt to dispel their reputation. Great efforts have been made by various manufacturers to make portable air conditioners… Continue Reading
