Common Types of Aircons in Sengkang
Window-Type Air Conditioner: Sengkang is known to have public households constructed by the HBD. What sets the flats apart from the other places is that Sengkang usually has a smaller space. One major advantage of having a Window AC firsthand is its affordability. It also depends on different factors like the brand, its BTU capacity and the features that come with it. Another advantage of this type of AC is that it is extremely energy efficient. Majority of the brands sold commercially have a decent EER and is ENERGY Star Certified. You can clean and do a monthly maintenance of the AC unit yourself but this should professionally be serviced by Oasis' General Aircon Servicing for a more thorough checking.
Centralized Air Conditioner: Most public establishments really require a cooling system most especially those that are enclosed spaces like the LRT, malls, and hotels. One of the major advantages of having a centralized air conditioning system is its efficiency and capacity to cool even the most congested areas. Another feature is its filtered air where most contaminants and allergens are filtered out in an area to prevent harmful effects to human health. One of the reasons why service maintenance is required for this type of AC is that molds tend to grow in the ducts connecting the cooling system to the different rooms.
