It is raining across Kenya but the Kenya Meteorological Department says that the rains will not last for long. Soon, the massive heat that has been sweeping across the country will return. The short rains came as a relief after weeks of terrible heatwaves that forced experts to advise Kenyans to either stay indoors or use sun creams and body lotions at all times.
Now that the heat is coming back, you may not want to profusely sweat like last time. What you need is not shifting positions within and without your room looking for fresh and cool air. What you need is an air conditioner.
Here are the things you should look for when shopping for an air conditioner:
This is the latest unique feature found in a few brands like LG Electronics that will give you the best A/C experience. This feature makes the air draft not fall on your head directly but steered upwards and lets it circulate into the corners of the room giving you an ocean-breeze-like feeling.
This feature is also suitable for your office. You do not want your employees falling asleep immediately after lunch when your clients are demanding reports with tons of work to be accomplished. Never overlook this feature.
Nobody loves the noise. When shopping for an air conditioner, look for one that operates silently. One that will not inconvenience you with unnecessary noise. You need an air conditioner that will give you peace of mind. Why else would you go for a noisy air conditioner that won’t even let you have a peaceful nap when the outside gets too hot?
In the age of technology, gone are the days of you trying to figure out what is wrong with your air conditioner. Look for an air conditioner that has a self-diagnosis feature that lets it detect errors and shows them in related code on the remote-control screen. Get an air conditioner that tells you where the problem is, saving you the pain of looking for a jua kali fundi who will just use guesswork to find out the problem.
Let us face it! You have all seen the prices that Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) is quoting when purchasing tokens. Would you want an air conditioner that consumes tokens like a thirsty traveler? Certainly not. With the increased cost of living, you do not want to buy an air conditioner that will always give you a run for your money with high energy costs. Look for one that uses less energy than traditional systems. There are air conditioners that use 50 percent less energy than traditional ones.
Look for an air conditioner that takes the shortest time possible to give you results. This means that when shopping for one, compare and go for one that offers a cooling function that is 1.5 times faster than the traditional systems. You do not want to have an air conditioner that will consume your energy “trying to get in shape” before giving you the results that you need.
What brand should you go for?
Look for LG Electronics, the leading innovator, and provider of advanced, high-quality air-conditioning for residential, commercial, and industrial applications, as well as other appliances, and have a wide range of air conditioners that will not only fit your needs but give you the future and the convenience that you need.
