    Air conditioning your home

    Published on 17 April 2019, Wednesday, 5:01 AM

    As the weather heats up this summer it's likely you'll start looking for new ways to cool down your home. If your ceiling fan isn't quite cutting it, why not consider an air conditioning unit?

    If you're a DIY enthusiast you can even install your own unit. Kennards Hire has all the equipment you need to do it yourself, including genie hoists.

    Air conditioning installation has more benefits than simply keeping your home cool.


    Air conditioners pump both cool and hot air into a home - all you need to do is set your desired temperature and sit back and relax.

    This means an air conditioner can be useful year-round as it will maintain a stable comfortable temperature inside your home. As the temperature drops in the winter months, simply crank the unit up and you'll be toasty warm in no time.

    Air quality

    An in-home air conditioner allows you to keep doors and windows closed throughout the day, blocking out outside air that can trigger allergies and respiratory issues. It can also help to reduce the growth of mould and mildew in your house as it acts as a dehumidifier.

    Health benefits

    There are a myriad of health benefits that can air conditioning can bring about. One 2012 study on air conditioning and mortality found the adoption of air conditioning in residential places explains the decline in the temperature-mortality relationship.

    Very young and very old people are particularly susceptible to the heat, and can be prone to overheating and suffering from heat-related health issues. Air conditioning units can keep people in these age groups more comfortable during Australia's hot summers.

    Choosing your unit

    If you decide to hire an air conditioner for any length of time, Kennards Hire is the place to go. Whether you're looking for an industrial size unit for larger spaces or a portable one for at-home use, there's a range here to suit everyone.

    A portable air conditioner is great for use in small spaces as you can simply move it around the house as you use new rooms. If you're going to be spending your day in the living room, close off the doors connecting to the room, put the air conditioner in the corner of the room and set it to the desired temperature.

    It can also be used as a dehumidifier and carpet dryer, making it the perfect choice for those muggy days when you want to dry your room out.
