How to select a Air Conditioner?

How to select a Air Conditioner?

That is right people the summer feeling is well and truly upon us! Last week the mercury reached a whopping 34 degrees on the Sunshine Coast. This article is designed to help you choose which air conditioner you might need to cool things down this season.   Purchasing an air conditioner There is a number of considerations to bear in mind when choosing an air conditioner. Do you live in rented accommodation? If so you may need to get approval first.  Alternatively such items as portable devices may suit. Consider the size of the space you wish to be cooled or heated.  Mis-sizing units may result in unsatisfactory results and high electricity bills. Would you like heating in winter? If so a reverse cycle air conditioner should be considered. Match the air conditioner to your room size Finding the right sized air conditioner for your room can depend on a number of factors such as the size of the room, size of windows, insulation and which way the room faces. You can use this table as a guide only. Please speak to a specialist before purchasing.   Room Size 3m x 3m = 9m2                   = 2.5kW 5m x 5m = 25m2                 = 3.5kW 6.3m x 6.3m = 40m2          = 5.0kW 6.7m x 6.7m = 45m2           = 6.0kW 7.1m x 7.1m = 50m2            = 7.1kW 7.7m x 7.7m = 55m2            = 8.0kW   Which brand... read more

Choosing the Right Electrician

Do you need an electrician? Follow these 3 easy steps to ensure this one is right for you! 1. Does the electrician have the right skill level for the job? This is the most overlooked criteria when selecting the right electrician. Sure they might have a licence but how much experience do they have in this particular task. A good tip to ensure you have the most experienced electrician would be to: – log onto there website (if they have one) and look at there scope of works they deal with. If they don’t specify don’t be afraid to call up directly and ask. 2. Checking credentials In Australia every electrician needs to be licensed to perform any electrical works. This can be searched online with a quick contractors check. Keep in mind that it is also illegal for you to hire an unlicensed electrician. 3. Pricing Most expensive doesn’t always mean the best job! However, you should be wary of a price that appears to low. It can often mean that the contractor is cutting some corners in order to win the job. Its a good idea to get a couple of quotes and make a decision on the criteria mentioned above. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to contact us and we will be happy to... read more
Maintaining Your Smoke Alarms

Maintaining Your Smoke Alarms

Testing & Maintaining your smoke alarms We can all feel the temperature dropping on the Sunshine Coast as we enter into the cooler winter months. Its time to bring out those winter woolies and for alot of people a nice and toastie space heater. Saying that this is the most important time of the year to make sure your smoke alarms are tested and are in good working order. Smoke alarms save lives! In Queensland about three quarters of all home fire deaths happen in houses without smoke alarms. Nearly half of all fire deaths happen when people are sleeping. At present the best smoke alarms are the photo electric type where they actually can ‘see’ the smoke by detecting the visible combustion particles in the air. These are also less likely to set off false alarms when cooking etc. Once installed in the correct location the testing part is easy. The battery is to be checked at least once a month by holding in the test button until it sounds. Sometimes a constant beeping sound is heard from time to time this usually means your battery is getting low and needs to be replaced. Here are a few more tips Always keep your smoke alarm clean from dust and other particles. Never paint over your smoke alarm. Always replace your smoke alarm battery once a year. Never remove your smoke alarms batteries. Always replace your smoke alarm when they reach the manufacturers expiry date. If you have any doubt that your smoke alarms are not functioning properly don’t hesitate to contact... read more
