Popular Heating and Cooling
We don’t often think about air conditioners with air purification to help with allergies. We explore how this works.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for energy ratings – new energy ratings explained. When buying appliances most people will check the energy ratings, particularly for things like air conditioners which have the potential to use a truck load of electricity. This is smart, keep doing it, the last thing you want is to find out your new air conditioner is too expensive for you to actually use.
What are Box Air Conditioners
Box air conditioners are the most simple to use and offer easy installation. It's a good choice for simple cooling and heating in rooms that are a bit smaller. Though they aren't big, they efficiently cool or heat a room in no time at all. Box air conditioners plug into any household power point with any additional electrical upgrades.
Often box air conditioners come with handy features such as air ionisers, remote controls and timers. The cooling capacity ranges from 1-1.9 KW all the way up to 6-6.9 KW. Compact and easy to install, most box air conditioners come with longer warranties up to five years.
About Portable Air Conditioners
Portable Air conditioners are perfect for anyone who wants to control the temperature in a room, but are constantly on the move. They are easy to use and don't require any installation. They are often lightweight and easy to move and include features such as timers and remote controls.
Because of their compact nature, portable air conditioners output starts at around 2-2.9 KW and don’t go much beyond that. Big brands such as Delonghi, Dimplex and Teco supply a very good range of portable Air Conditioners which come with either a 2 or a 5 year warranty and an optional backup plan for added protection.
About Split System Air Conditioners
Split System Air Conditioners are fixed and require installation by a professional. They consist of two parts, one that is attached to the inside wall that allows you to feel the air, and the other being on the outside which exhausts the heat out. They are efficient, quiet, and a lot more powerful. Split systems will cool or heat larger areas quickly.
Features include built in wifi as well as motion sensors and air ionisers.
Domestic split system air conditioners range from 2-2.9 KW to around 9-9.9 KW. Fujitsu, Kelvinator, Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic and Teco offer a large selection of split system Air conditioners, which all have their own unique features and often include a 5 year warranty.
About Desk Fans
Small and compact, desk fans will provide a cool steam of air in a small workspace. Air multipliers may be a safer option around children. Air multipliers have no visible moving or fast-spinning blades; instead, blades are hidden inside the base minimising risk of injury. Some desk fans have a clamp to fasten to a desk and some have remotes to operate the fan at a distance.

Pedestal fans are a cost effective, portable solution for cooling a space. Easy to assemble and operate, pedestal fans come in various sizes and speeds. Most are height adjustable with a speed control on the stem and an oscillation control at the rear. All our fans come with a 1 or 2 year warranty with an optional backup plan for added protection
About Tower Fans
Often tower fans have concealed blades making them a much safer option around children or pets. Quiet and lightweight, tower fans are slim and easy to position in any room. They are inconspicuous and often more powerful than their pedestal counterpart. Some tower fans have a built in carry handle for easy relocation. All tower fans come with a warranty and optional backup plan for added protection
