When you were a child, was there anything as fun as standing in front of an air-cooling unit in the middle of summer with the chill of the breeze flowing over your skin giving you goosebumps?
Yet you can’t bring yourself to move away for fear of walking back into the heat of the day and feeling overcome with exhaustion, as dramatic as that all sounds we are pushed aside by our parents wanting some of that cool air to circulate the home, thank you very much.
We may not have all grown up with the privilege of an air conditioner, I know I only had the luxury as I neared my teenage years and even then it was short-lived as I went off to complete my studies. The kids of today, however, see having a cooling system in the home as the norm, they would surely think something is wrong if it wasn’t the standard when moving house.
So what essentially is classified as a cooling system, or rather an AC? My granny used to despise the things, hilarious as it was because she believed no unit could filter out all or any micro-organisms and produce crisp, clean air. She lived her life based on ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ motto, so germs can come but they won’t survive. Brilliant.
I remember walking into her room one afternoon, the height of summer, and you could practically ‘see’ the heat waves in the air. She had a damp cloth hanging over her plugged-in free-standing fan and the cool air blowing on her neck. Although dangerous and a full-blown campaign for what not to do, I had to give it to her, it was genius.
Find out what exactly is an air conditioning unit
In simple terms, for those of us who don’t have the brain capacity to deal with technical, and HVAC jargon, it is a box that pumps cool air into a room and extracts the warm air. The spaces are usually small to moderate and the air circulation can become stagnant if not rotated enough or efficiently.

It may not be of interest to those who understand nothing about installing units into homes, or the DIYer of the house, but knowledge is never wasted and who knows, you may just have the answer to give in the future if someone you know is stuck.
If you are the maintenance man in the house when things start to break it may be a viable consideration to do a crash course in repairs, or binge-watch YouTube videos if spending the cash is not something you’re looking forward to unless it is necessary.
4 Benefits of using an air conditioner
- This is significantly improved if you struggle to get a deep night’s rest or you live in a hot climate. With the air regulated to optimum temperatures, you can drift off into dreamland and wake up feeling refreshed. No more endless nights of tossing and turning.
- Electrically safer. Tablets and phones of kids are constantly on charge and can lead to over-heating if not careful, keeping the room temperatures cool prevents and minimizes the risks of appliances warming up and causing sparks or worse, a fire.
- Work-performance. Feeling sticky and being glued to your chair is enough to make even the die-hard workaholic fed up, employees in the workplace perform better if the room isn’t a sauna. A simple installation can save you money in the long run with tasks being completed quicker and more efficiently.
