Welcome to an exploration of the often unknown yet valuable features and benefits of air conditioning units. From the typical cooling functions you’d expect, to surprising features that improve your life in significant ways, there’s a lot more to our AC units than meets the eye. 

As your trusted partner in providing both residential and commercial air conditioning solutions, IACS is committed to not only supplying high-quality AC units but also educating our clients about their incredible benefits. Choose IACS for both Perth or Brisbane air conditioning services. 

1 Improved air quality 

Air conditioners circulate and filter air, removing harmful pollutants and allergens. This process is particularly beneficial for people with allergies and asthma, as it minimises the irritants that can trigger an attack. Modern AC units have advanced filters that can trap tiny particles, effectively cleaning the indoor air. As a company, we ensure that our AC units are fitted with top-tier air filters to ensure the air you breathe is as clean and healthy as possible. 

2 Better work performance 

Work environments can quickly become uncomfortable and stifling without proper cooling, particularly during hot summer months. The heat can make tasks seem more laborious, reducing productivity and morale. Commercial AC units are essential in maintaining a comfortable temperature, creating an environment where employees can concentrate and work efficiently. Studies show that the ideal office temperature for peak productivity is around 22°C, which can be effortlessly maintained with our high-quality AC units. 

3 Humidity reduction 

Besides cooling your spaces, AC units also reduce the level of humidity. This is crucial because high humidity can promote the growth of mould and mildew, which can lead to health issues like allergic reactions and respiratory disorders. Besides, excessive humidity can damage your property, including furniture, electronics, and even structural elements of your building. Our AC units effectively control and maintain humidity levels, ensuring a healthy and safe environment. 

4 Noise reduction 

Older AC units could be quite noisy, but modern air conditioning units are designed to be as quiet as possible, allowing for a peaceful home or work environment. Noise reduction is particularly crucial in office settings, where a quiet environment can contribute to increased productivity. Our AC units utilise advanced technology for near-silent operation, ensuring comfort without the distraction of noise. 

5 Smart controls 

Today’s AC units come with smart control features that allow for easy and convenient operation. You can adjust temperature settings, operating times, and even control your AC unit remotely via smartphone apps. These features not only make it easier to maintain a comfortable temperature but can also contribute to energy efficiency. With our smart AC units, you’ll have full control over your cooling system at the tip of your fingers. Learn more and read about the benefits of controlling your AC from your phone here. 

6 Efficient cooling 

Energy efficiency is a crucial aspect of modern air conditioning units. With global consciousness about energy usage and its impact on the environment, AC units have evolved to provide efficient cooling solutions. High-efficiency models cool your space effectively while using significantly less energy, which can save you money on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. We offer a range of high-efficiency AC units that meet the highest industry standards. 

7 Sleep improvement 

One of the often-overlooked benefits of air conditioning units is their substantial contribution to sleep improvement. The role temperature plays in our sleep quality is significant, and maintaining an optimal sleep environment can drastically enhance the quality of our rest. 

Most people sleep best in a slightly cool environment, which is usually around 15.5-19.5°C. This range is considered ideal as it aligns well with our bodies’ natural dips in temperature during sleep, facilitating both the onset of sleep and its uninterrupted continuation. 

Air conditioning units are the perfect tool for achieving this precise thermal environment. They allow you to control your bedroom’s temperature accurately, ensuring a consistently comfortable and conducive sleep environment. 

Our residential AC units come equipped with advanced, responsive temperature controls. These controls not only allow you to set your desired temperature with precision but also maintain it consistently throughout the night. The units are designed to adjust their output to respond to any changes in indoor temperature, ensuring that your sleeping environment remains within your desired range. 

Moreover, a well-maintained AC unit also contributes to better sleep by reducing humidity levels and improving indoor air quality. High humidity can make your environment feel stuffy and hotter than it is, while cleaner air can help prevent allergies and respiratory issues that may disrupt sleep. Learn more about how sleeping in a cooler environment can help your sleep and leave you waking up ready to take on the day here. 

8 Enhanced security 

Once you invest in residential or commercial air conditioning installation, you’re likely to keep your doors and windows closed, which can enhance the security of your home or office. This can significantly reduce the risk of burglary and provide additional peace of mind. Besides, our AC units come with secure installation methods that add an extra layer of security to your property. 

9 Versatility 

Modern AC units offer a variety of cooling options to suit different needs. Whether it’s central air conditioning for a large commercial property or a ductless mini split for a small apartment, there’s an AC solution for every space. We provide a wide range of AC systems, offering expert advice to help you choose the best one for your specific needs. 

10 Zoned cooling 

Advanced AC units come with zone cooling capabilities. This feature allows you to set different temperatures in different zones or rooms of your home or office, optimising comfort and energy efficiency. It’s a perfect solution for large homes or offices where cooling needs vary across the building. 

11 Programmable timers 

Programmable timers are a beneficial feature incorporated into many modern air conditioning units. This feature provides you with an added layer of control and customisation over your unit’s operation, allowing you to tailor your cooling schedule to your specific needs and lifestyle. 

Here’s how it works: You can pre-set your AC unit to turn on or off at specific times of the day. For instance, if you know that your home or office tends to get warm in the afternoon, you can set the AC to start cooling the space before you return, ensuring that you walk into a perfectly comfortable environment. 

12 Eco-friendly refrigerants 

One of the most significant advancements in modern air conditioning technology is the use of eco-friendly refrigerants. These refrigerants are specially designed to have minimal impact on the environment, marking a substantial stride in the quest for sustainable cooling solutions.

Unlike traditional refrigerants that significantly contributed to the depletion of the ozone layer and had high global warming potential (GWP), these modern, eco-friendly options are much safer. They neither deplete the ozone layer nor contribute significantly to global warming, making them a responsible choice for cooling needs. 

At IACS, we fully understand and appreciate the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility. That’s why our AC units incorporate these eco-friendly refrigerants. By doing so, we aim to offer products that not only provide exceptional performance and comfort but also contribute positively to global climate change mitigation efforts. 

In essence, choosing our AC units equipped with eco-friendly refrigerants means you’re playing an active role in safeguarding our planet. It’s not just about enjoying the immediate cooling comfort, but also about ensuring a healthier and safer environment for future generations. This initiative aligns with our commitment to leading the industry in sustainable practices, thereby offering you the opportunity to cool your spaces without heating the planet. 

13 Dehumidification mode 

Some AC units come with a dedicated dehumidification mode, which reduces humidity in your space without significantly lowering the temperature. This is particularly useful during the rainy season or in naturally humid climates. 

14 Maintenance alerts 

Smart AC units are equipped with a series of sensors that monitor various system parameters, including filter condition, coil status, refrigerant levels, and overall system performance. When these sensors detect an issue that could impact the efficiency or longevity of the unit, the system will generate an alert. For instance, if a filter becomes clogged with dust and dirt, the system can alert you that it’s time to clean or replace the filter. 

#15 Auto defrost 

When sensors within the AC unit detect a build-up of frost or ice on the outdoor coils, the auto-defrost feature is automatically activated. The unit temporarily switches to cooling mode or stops the compressor, causing the refrigerant’s flow direction to change. This change warms the outdoor coils, effectively melting the frost or ice. 

16 Self diagnosis 

The self-diagnosis feature in an air conditioning (AC) unit is an automated system designed to monitor and diagnose potential problems or malfunctions within the unit. This technology is incorporated into many modern air conditioners to improve their functionality and ease of maintenance. 

It monitors the operating conditions and performance parameters of various components, including the compressor, fan motor, evaporator and condenser coils, sensors, and more. If an irregularity or fault is detected in any of these components, the self-diagnosis feature will trigger an error code. This code is usually displayed on the AC unit’s digital display panel. 

17 Longevity 

With proper maintenance, modern air conditioner units can last for many years, making them a valuable long-term investment. We not only provide durable and reliable AC units, but we also offer comprehensive maintenance services to ensure your unit stays in top shape for as long as possible.
