Where is the best place to install my air conditioner in my bedroom?

How often should my aircon be serviced?
Depending on what aircon system you have, it should be serviced at least once a year, with periodic inspections up to four times per year. Based on your aircons size, age and usage, a service provider such as AC Direct, will be able to tailor a service plan that will meet your requirements and also keep your system running reliably.
Why does my air-conditioning system need more refrigerant each year?
If your aircon needs recharging of refrigerant on a regular basis, it is most likely leaking and needs to be repaired. A leaking refrigerant will not only cause your aircon to lose cooling capacity and use more energy, it is also not good for the environment. One of the worst culprits in the depletion of the ozone layer is refrigerant gases being released.
Is my air conditioning able to control humidity in my building?
When it comes to the humidity of your building, levels that are too low or high are one of the leading causes of poor indoor air quality, this can also result in the spread of airborne illnesses, mold growth and even computer breakdowns.
When your air-conditioning system is properly designed and controlled, it should keep the air in your building at around 40 and 60% relative humidity. While there are many different methods that have been used to help you aircon remove humidity from the air, one of the most efficient methods involve using the heat that is generated by the aircon itself to cause the unit to run long enough to get rid of more moisture from the air.
