Until a few decades ago, almost no one had an air conditioner in their homes, due to the very high costs they had, the techniques still in the experimental phase and the very high energy consumption they procured. But it wasn’t a drama, people trusted to sleep with the windows open, having the possibility to keep their environment cool and without suffering too much heat.
Alas, this option today has become almost impossible. Nobody sleeps with the windows open anymore because of the fact that they no longer trust each other, that the tranquility of the past has been replaced by an excess of little trust and fear in the surrounding environment.
But let’s not digress, to return to our discussion, it has become impossible to resist without an air conditioner in one’s own home. Summers have become unbearable and increasingly difficult to cope with. Sultriness, humidity and heat often make one unbearable and nervous, they make one’s appetite go away and cause discomfort that should not be underestimated. That’s why more and more people are opting to buy this device that can solve many problems and give us back the well-being we need.
Thanks to the advancement of the choice, more and more techniques have been developed in order to satisfy the whole population and to meet the different needs of people.
The choice of the air conditioner varies according to the needs, the economic possibilities and the demands that everyone has.
In recent years, in fact, more and more people have opted for a portable air conditioner instead of a fixed one.
Let’s try to explain and understand the advantages it gives:
Surely the first of all is the possibility to move it from one room to another or in general from one place to another without excessive problems. If you live in a rented apartment, for example, the choice of a portable air conditioner would be optimal, avoiding excessive holes in the walls of an apartment that is not our property. In addition, the fact that we can move it from the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom without any problems, allows us to save both installation costs and the energy used by this appliance.
But that’s not all, the portable air conditioner does not require any particular installation, it requires the presence of a power outlet, possibly near a window. Yes, because your air conditioner has the function of trapping the hot air in the room and expelling fresh air, but to do this it needs to be close to a source of air exchange. In fact, it is equipped with a pipe that will be placed outside the window allowing it to expel all the hot air previously taken from the surrounding environment.
What does saving energy mean?
First of all, energy saving means saving all those energy sources that could be used in other projects or devices. So the greater the energy savings in certain product categories, the greater the possibility of using the energy saved in other projects or products.
Returning to our main argument, it is well known that even for portable air conditioners, the greater the cooling capacity, the greater the energy consumption will be. This all depends on the size of the room you are going to cool and the power used by the air conditioner to do so.
With the progressive development of technology, it has been possible to refine energy-saving techniques for many devices, including air conditioners.
It has to be said that in 2020 the problem of excessive energy consumption is something to take into account and not to be underestimated so that we will have a positive impact on the environment in the future.
One of the real advantages of energy saving is the new Enel D1 experimental tariff, which allows to refresh and heat the room and to have access to a reduced energy price. In fact, more and more companies are offering conventions and benefits to raise awareness of energy saving and encourage customers to buy air conditioners that bring benefits both to them as individuals and within the community helping to preserve the environment in which we live.
Another benefit relates to tax deductions that are put into practice when deciding to purchase an energy-saving air conditioner. In fact, it is not a simple deduction, but even an Irpef deduction of 40%. In this regard, it will be possible to deduct up to a maximum of €30,000.
What energy class?
With regard to the energy class, the calculation can be difficult. In any case, one of the certainties is that the choice of A+++ class models is definitely the best. In fact, with this energy class the energy consumption will be reduced to a minimum and in the long term will allow considerable savings.
If, for various reasons, it is not possible to buy an air conditioner belonging to this class, the best thing to do in this regard is to choose an air conditioner that falls within an energy class A or higher.
