How to Completely Change Your Thoughts About HVAC

Welcome to my blog. My name is Betty, and I recently invested in a new heating and cooling system. It had been years since I had purchased our old system, and my husband was alive then. This was the first time selecting my own system. I did a lot of research and even considered taking our HVAC system off the grid. Now, that my house is the perfect temperature all the time, I'm ready to try something else -- so I decided to start a blog. Here, I am going to post a range of blogs on HVAC related issues as well as home repairs and other topics. I hope that you like it.

Can Your Struggling Air Conditioner Cope With Another Aussie Summer?

by Eva Fisher

It is no surprise to anyone that summertime in Australia is a whole different beast from what it is in many other parts of the world. Scorching temperatures and the piercing sun are mixed with the constant threat of flooding due to flash thunderstorms that can dump immense amounts of water. If you live in Australia, you know just how important an air conditioner is during these months and yet many people are making do with models that are way past their use-by date and not efficient anymore. Here are a few reasons why you should consider upgrading your struggling unit to one that is new and improved.

Cheaper For You

While the initial cost of your new air conditioning unit might be a fair bit of money, the truth is that over the course of the many years you use it, it will save you money compared to your current model. Many older air conditioning units are not as good at conserving energy as modern varieties are, and can suck up vast amounts of electricity. With all utilities rising in cost due to inflation, this problem will only get worse and a new air conditioner is the only real solution.


Perhaps one of the more annoying problems with older air conditioning units is that they are very loud. Everything from the process of turning one on to the sound of the fans creaking as they turn from side to side can be an extreme annoyance. Modern air conditioning units are whisper-quiet and able to cool huge sections of your home or apartment with little more than a very soft hum that is not even audible unless you are right up underneath it.

Disastrous Possibility 

It is often better to plan for a new air conditioning system rather than wait for your current one to finally break down to the point that it is no longer able to be repaired. If you wait for that eventuality to happen, you will be stuck in the middle of summer for days at a time before you can get a new one installed, and that will be disastrous. Planning ahead of time so that you are never without an air conditioner is very important, and should be done as early as possible in the summer season to reduce all chances of being sweltering hot in your own home.
