Conned by air-con
With so many brands and pricing on offer, air-conditioning for summer has become a hot topic.
Adelaide’s Sharpe Energy-Hub has one simple piece of advice for homeowners upgrading, or renovators and new-home builders agonizing over the bewildering array of choice.
“Ask how much the system costs to run, not how much it costs to buy and get installed,” says Sharpe Energy-Hub’s David Sharpe.
His company has seen many examples of buyers conned by super-cheap deals on substandard undersized inefficient systems.
“The cheapest systems cost the most to run whereas both build standards and efficiency have improved dramatically with technology over the last three years.” Mr. Sharpe says.
The latest, industry-leading air-conditioners run quieter, use up to 65 percent less power and have game-changing technology, such as IoT or Z-Wave sensing control, so a system can be activated before people arrive home.
A good quality, well-maintained reverse-cycle air-conditioner is one of the most cost-efficient ways to cool or heat a house, especially when linked by rooftop solar.
Sharpe Energy-Hub has had decades of experience in airworks. Its experts can analyse your energy use to help you find the best system to get you through these increasingly hot summers.
With almost half of a typical power bill going on heating and cooling, it makes sense to consider upgrading.
Another bonus is that the latest battery technology is compatible with the latest air-conditioners, crushing your energy costs.
All these systems are installed and serviced by Sharpe’s own technicians, not subcontractors, to give reassurance regarding warranties and guarantees.
This is backed by the experience and knowledge of 39 years in business.
Don’t be conned by cheap air-con deals. Call Sharpe Energy-Hub for the real deal.
Ducted air-conditioning is a long-term investment for a household so choose the best engineered, quietest and most efficient system.
