No matter where you live, it’s important to be prepared for the hottest days of the year with a dependable air conditioner. Whether you’re replacing an old split unit or installing through-the-wall air conditioners in your new home, we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
About one-quarter of Nigerian families have a window air conditioner or in-room air conditioner, and the numbers are increasing rapidly. Why? Because these appliances are great solutions to the heat and humidity of extremely hot-sunny weather.
Our guide will help you to choose the best Scanfrost air conditioner suited for your home or office.
Choose your type of Air Conditioners:
SPLIT AIR CONDITIONERS
TOWER AIR CONDITIONERS
Scanfrost air conditioners are so quiet that the only sound you might hear is the fan running. Air conditioners that are noisy disturb light sleepers even when set on low, and are distracting to all when set on high. So make sure the noise level for the air conditioner you are buying is at its lowest level.
Some air conditioners have longer warranties. When you’re buying a new unit, check the manufacturer’s website for information and ask the retailer about the Warranty for that model and brand.
Before buying, be sure your home’s electrical system can handle the appliance’s power needs. If a dedicated or 230-volt circuit is required, you’ll need to have an electrical contractor install this.
This function helps to reduce the humidity in the air to create a healthy environment for you and your family
Adjustable louvers let you manipulate the direction air is blown from the unit. If the unit is going to be placed in a living room, being able to adjust the vent can mean keeping the unit from blowing directly on people who may be sitting in the living area. It also lets you optimize air flow in the space if you will be utilizing a room or ceiling fan.
Make sure you can easily access the filter for cleaning, something you’ll be doing frequently to keep the unit in tip-top condition.
The level of cooling an air conditioner is capable of, is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU)
The higher the number the greater the cooling capacity, but bigger isn’t always better. In order to properly cool a room, you have to match the BTU capacity of the air conditioner to the dimensions of the room that needs cooling. An underpowered air conditioner won’t cool a large room properly.
On the other hand, one that has too high of a BTU rating cools the area so quickly that it doesn’t have time to dehumidify the air, which can leave the space feeling cold and clammy.
Usually, a cooling requirement is a very complex process and many factors affect the capacity required e.g. number of windows, the direction of the room, number of people, heat generating equipment inside the room etc.
Note that, 1 Horse Power (1HP) = 2,544.43 BTU’s per hour The chart below will help you find the right cooling capacity for you room
