ALP Heating Ltd. has announced a campaign that aims to educate the people of Ontario and other areas about how they can get the best air conditioning units. The move comes in the wake of the growing number of faulty and problematic air conditioners flooding the market. Ideally, an air conditioner should last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. However, many of these units don’t last longer than two to three years due to their substandard build.
ALP Heating is aware of these concerns, which is why it has developed a campaign to inform owners of outdated and dysfunctional air cooling units about what to look for when buying a model and how to maintain one. A spokesperson for the company backed up this claim by saying, “People should understand that they can’t always rely on the word of the salesperson when it comes to purchasing air conditioning units. They should conduct their research and get to know the different features they will need.”
While there are eight types of cooling units on the market, the three most common ones are:
Central air cooling units
Portable air cooling units
Window air cooling units are the most popular type of ACs. They can be installed in a window or through a wall. These units have the advantage of requiring no ground area, which makes them the best option for smaller settings. However, they’re not always compatible with all windows.
Central air conditioners are the best option for cooling an entire house or office. On the flip side, they are more expensive to install and run than other types. Portable ACs are, as the name implies, easy to move around. They have a straightforward setup process. However, they can be noisy when in operation and are ineffective at cooling larger interior spaces.
Alp Heating Ltd. emphasizes eight points that can help people get the right cooling system for them.
Cooling capability of the air conditioner in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and the size of the interior space that needs cooling
Location of installation
Amount of space required to install the unit
Cooling costs and environmental benefits
Installation ease and appliance maintenance
Equipment’s noise level
AC’s purpose after the heat wave
These points, the company says, shouldn’t be ignored as they form the basis of making an informed decision. When it comes to maintenance, ALP Heating Ltd. Advises AC owners to:
Replace their unit’s air filter monthly
Inspect the fins and condensate drain
Clean up the coils
Schedule professional maintenance
