With winter approaching, many consumers are starting to wonder what air conditioner to choose to heat their home. The answer to this question is a sum of many factors that are good to consider.


There are a wide variety of brands and models available on the market for air conditioning systems and this could make it difficult for you. To make the right choice for your household, you can use our tips. In this article, we will look at what to consider when looking for an air conditioner for heating.


Tips for choosing an air conditioner for heating


Under what conditions will the air conditioner work?


Outdoor conditions

It's important to consider what the lowest temperatures are in your living area. Pay attention not only to the brand, but also to the temperature range that is indicated in the information about the appliance.


In case you choose an air conditioner that is not designed to operate at the freezing temperatures that are reached in your area, it will start going into Defrost mode too frequently. Thus, it will not be efficient enough.


Energy efficiency

Make sure the appliance is sufficiently energy efficient. You can find this out from the COP, EER, SCOP and SEER ratings that make up the energy classes of air conditioning systems.


Room conditions

In addition to outdoor conditions, consider your choice in relation to the conditions of your home.


Room size and type

Your air conditioner should be powerful enough for the capacity of the room to be as efficient as possible. Also consider whether you'll be using your air conditioner for the bedroom, living room or kitchen, as well as which floor the home is on.


Insulation and exposure

Also consider the insulation of the home when making your choice. Are there good quality windows and what is the layout of the air-conditioned rooms? If the insulation is not very good and the exposure is such that the room does not have access to a particular amount of sunlight, this means that you will need a more powerful air conditioner to compensate for the heat loss.


Installation conditions

The most popular type of home air conditioning systems is the wall-mounted type. But wall-mounted air conditioners are not always the most suitable. For example, if you need to find an air conditioning system for a room with a sloping ceiling - floor air conditioners will do a better job.


Available features

Modern air conditioning systems have a very wide range of smart features. Before choosing which system to invest in, review the information about the features and settings it has. For example, if your air conditioner's priority is to clean the air as well as possible, pay attention to what filters it is equipped with.


Human activity sensor

This is a very handy feature that will help you save on your energy bills. When activated, the system senses the presence of people in the room and adjusts its power output accordingly. In your absence, the air conditioner will lower the consumption and thus operate in economy mode.


Noise level

This is one of the most significant features for user comfort. Check in the product description what the noise levels of the indoor and outdoor units are in the different operating modes. They are marked with (db).


Wi-Fi control capability

One of the most convenient features allows you to control the air conditioning system from anywhere and at any time from your smartphone or tablet. This will help you manage your air conditioner wisely and save on your electricity costs.


Consult a specialist

When choosing the right air conditioner for your home, it's a good idea to consult a specialist to guide you. They will be familiar with the best systems on the market and will be able to tell you what type and size of system to look for.
