Your home environment has a huge impact on your family’s health and well-being.
Central heating was a good step forward but the modern approach uses air conditioning to produce the conditions you want, where you want them and when you want them.
Filtered air removes pollen, dust mites and other irritants that cause and exacerbate allergies. The fact you can keep your windows closed means you can have better security and fewer flies and other insects in your house while maintaining the temperatures you want in the summer as well as the winter.
The hot summer months can be uncomfortable at night but elegant and discreet air conditioning can make them comfortable, reducing lost sleep and improving both work and leisure time.
Air conditioning is more responsive than central heating, quickly warming or cooling a room. Dehumidification reduces problems of damp. Air conditioning units are programmable, so they can come on just before you get home and the faster response time means you can run them for less time in advance than you can with central heating.
