In which cases is it good to choose a column air conditioner?
Air conditioners are the most widespread heating and cooling systems. They exist in different variants so that you can choose the most suitable one for your needs.
One of the most popular air conditioners is column air conditioners. If you are still not sure if they are the right choice for you, read this article. Here we take a look at everything you need to know about them.
For what rooms are column air conditioners suitable?
Column air conditioners are a preferred and convenient option for air conditioning commercial establishments, sports halls, restaurants and offices . The only option where such a home air conditioning system is recommended is for large rooms. Similar rooms are, for example, open-type rooms, such as a living room with a kitchen in one.
Due to their high power, these air conditioners are suitable for large rooms over 30 sq.m. Therefore, there is no point in looking at the specifics of these air conditioners if you need air conditioning in a small apartment.
Column air conditioner – what is it?
This is an inverter air conditioner with good energy efficiency , both in heating and cooling mode. It has two bodies – internal and external, the internal being very mobile. It can be placed in any part of the room as long as there is enough space for it. Characteristic of the indoor unit is its oblong shape and its ability to distribute air flow well in large rooms. The external unit is very similar to that of other split systems .
Another characteristic of this air conditioner is the rapid reaching of the set temperature. Therefore, it is also very suitable for air conditioning in restaurants and commercial establishments.
How does a column air conditioner work?
As mentioned, this air conditioner is distinguished by the tall and long indoor unit. Unlike wall-mounted air conditioners, which are mounted on the wall, column units are placed on the floor. So they don’t take up space on your wall. However, it is good to be aware that column air conditioners take up space and height. Therefore, you should think carefully about where you will place them.
They work with a powerful air jet that cools or heats according to your requirements. When placing the air conditioner, keep in mind that the air stream should not be aimed directly at people or electrical appliances. This is especially true for establishments or offices where people are in a static position for a long time. The new models of column air conditioners have settings for redirecting the air stream, which is very convenient for users.
A column air conditioner draws air from the room and processes it (cools or warms it), then blows it back. Passing through the air conditioner, the air is purified from dust and other impurities. Thus, the occupants of the room can enjoy clean and fresh air.
