8 Fun Facts About Air Conditioning

Are you looking to learn more about air conditioning? FM Mechanical has put together an infographic with eight fun facts about air conditioning.  

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

Why Is My Air Conditioning Leaking Water?

Often, a small amount of leakage from your air conditioning unit can be relatively normal. So if you notice a puddle of water close by, it isn’t always necessary to call out a specialist. However, there are some circumstances when it comes to AC water leakage, where a contractor will have to be called. Here’s everything you need to know.     Signs That Your Air Conditioning is Leaking Too Much As previously mentioned, a… Continue Reading

What Are The Best Air Conditioning Brands?

Air conditioners have quickly become a common feature of homes and businesses alike. Their popularity has, unsurprisingly, led to an abundance of different options available for the consumer. It can be difficult to know where to start — and that’s where we come in. FM Mechanical has extensive knowledge about the air conditioning industry. We know our Bekos from our Boschs and our Haiers from our Mideas. We know which brands are the coolest thing… Continue Reading

How Expensive is Air Conditioning to Run?

Asking how expensive it is to run air conditioning in your home is like asking how long a piece of string is; it’s an impossible question to answer. With that being said, Neil Armstrong was told it would be impossible to go to the moon; Churchill was told it would be impossible to beat the Germans and Leicester were told it would be impossible to win the Premier League — and so we’re going to… 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

How We Can Fix Air Pollution

As humans continue to cross new boundaries with their fantastic advancements across a number of globally-impactful industries, it is important not to ignore the globally-impactful consequences that unfortunately arise as a result. In this article, we will be covering what air pollution is, why it’s bad for us, and what we as a species can do about it.   What Is Air Pollution? Although not easily visible, air pollution is all around us and is… Continue Reading

The Benefits of Good Indoor Air Quality

The average human being inhales and exhales 11,000 litres of air on average every day. It’s what gives you oxygen to fuel your cells and therefore allows you to live a happy healthy life. However, air isn’t 100% oxygen, as this would be lethal – it’s actually around 20% oxygen. What also lurks in the air – especially in the inner city – is pollutants, such as micro-carbons and particulates. These airborne nasties are detrimental… Continue Reading

What Temperature Should My Home Be?

The UK government recommend an internal domestic temperature of 21°C. This is odd because most homes and their occupiers are happy at a temperature far below that and the issue is subjective anyway. Younger people require a lower temperature and the elderly or ill naturally require a higher temperature.   However, the internet has found a perfect temperature for each room in the home which we’ll share with you here. If you have air conditioning… Continue Reading
