In our latest video, Cool You’s managing director Savva addresses a few concerns about how air conditioning can impact climate change and the environment.
Climate change in London and across the globe is a hot topic and something we have all started taking more seriously recently.
We all need to keep cool in summer, and as the past few years have shown, heat waves are becoming more and more common.
Those who suffer from hay fever and allergies in particular often need to escape indoors away from the pollen, so a cool and welcoming apartment is essential.
Mounting concerns about energy use and an increased carbon footprint can make choosing an air conditioning solution difficult.
With this in mind, it’s great to know that Cool You’s internal solutions are working just as hard for the environment as they are for the customer.
Watch the video and read on to find out just what Savva has to say about air conditioning, the impact on climate change, and how Cool You is addressing this every day.
The Impact of Climate Change: How Cool You can help
The right size
The first way that you can help to make a difference in climate change in London is by having an air conditioning system that is the right size for your space.
There’s no point in having an oversized unit if you’re only cooling a small room or apartment. That leads to wasted energy, which contributes to your carbon footprint.
Cool You is the expert in understanding what the right type of solution for your space is.
Our detailed surveys will ensure your air conditioning system is sized appropriately, which minimises waste and ensures minimal impact on the environment.
A massive air conditioning unit in a tiny space isn’t just wasteful – it’s not very useful either.
It might be tempting to get the biggest option available, with the mindset of turning it down if it gets too cold, but it’s really not necessary, and it’s important to consider the impact a large unit has on the environment.
A small, one-bedroom apartment doesn’t need an air conditioning unit capable of cooling an entire house, and we wouldn’t offer you that kind of solution if it didn’t suit your needs.
It would certainly end up being expensive for you, and in the long run, it’s costly to the planet too.
The right gases
The second point is all about the special refrigerant gases used in the air conditioning systems.
There have always been concerns about how refrigerant gases affect the environment.
Our completely internal solutions use the very latest gases, keeping them in line with top brands such as Mitsubishi, Toshiba and Daikin.
The gas our solutions currently use is called R410A, which has no negative impact on the ozone layer, unlike some older refrigerant gases.
R410A is also very energy efficient, making it the greener choice for air conditioning systems at this time.
The right technology
If you’re worried about climate change in London, then there’s more to an efficient air conditioning unit than just correct sizing and efficient gases. It has to have the most up-to-date technology to allow you to manage its usage.
Cool You’s air conditioning units all come with built-in intelligent controls.
This means that you can set your desired temperature, and the unit will reach that temperature and then gently adjust itself as the ambient temperature rises and falls.
This means your system is only ever using a tiny trickle of electricity, with no power surges, unlike units that are constantly switching on and off.
Your intelligent internal solution will maintain the perfect temperature all day.
On top of this, you also have full control of your Cool You air conditioning solution thanks to WiFi-enabled controls.
These allow you to switch your unit on or off from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection.
This means that if you suddenly find you’re going to be out all day, you could switch your unit off until half an hour before heading home and still arrive back at your apartment to the perfect temperature, ideal for your own personal living space.
This could potentially save a huge amount of energy – great for your pocket and even better for the environment.
iFeel is another way Cool You’s unique units help reduce energy costs. iFeel allows you to use your unit’s controller as a remote thermostat, creating microclimates where you need them within your home.
This is particularly useful in high ceilinged or very large rooms.
There are so many ways Cool You is working to ensure your air conditioning solution uses the least amount of energy possible.
Looking to the future
We’re always looking to make our air conditioning solutions more environmentally friendly.
That’s why as new and more efficient refrigerant gases come in, we want to ensure we’re using them in our models.
Cool You will be switching to a new gas called R32 once it’s more widely available, which will, again, keep us in line with the top brands supplying larger, conventional air conditioning units.
R32 is considered a next-generation refrigerant and has been developed by air conditioning specialists with the future of our planet and the environment firmly in mind.
R32, like our current gases, has no impact whatsoever on the ozone layer, unlike older CFCs, which were very damaging.
It also has a much lower impact on global warming, thus minimising its contribution toward climate change even further. Like the current R410A gas we use, R32 is also very energy efficient.
All in all, we’re working towards a range of air conditioning units that you can use with the peace of mind that they’re having the lowest possible impact on planet earth.
