What you need to know about nursery air conditioning
If you’ve been thinking about air conditioning your nursery, you’re not alone… lots of new mums and dads living in South East Queensland want to install nursery air conditioning.
You’ve got air con in other rooms, such as your lounge room and bedroom, so why should bub suffer in a hot nursery?
The good news for all parents is that air conditioning a nursery with a small room air conditioner is usually very simple and inexpensive.
Of course you could always put in a ceiling fan; the trouble is that when it gets really hot, all fans do is push the hot air around the room – it won’t actually cool a nursery. And what about when winter gets here? A ceiling fan won’t warm a nursery either, not like a top brand reverse cycle air conditioner.
A qualified Home Air Conditioning specialist, such as Acer Services, can recommend and install a highly affordable air conditioner for your nursery.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the common questions we get asked from mums and dads about nursery air conditioning.
Is nursery air conditioning safe?
If you do have to take them to another room without air-conditioning, it’s a good idea to lay baby on a thin mattress or cotton sheet on the floor as it will be much cooler for him/her down there. This is because hot air rises.
Furthermore, and this might seem strange coming from an air conditioning company, ask yourself if the air conditioner really needs to be on as much as it is in the nursery.
Unless it’s unbearably hot, you can keep baby fairly cool with a damp washcloth or a light spray of cool water from an atomiser. Or this might be where an electric fan will suffice.
Also you can keep the nursery cooler by drawing the curtains or keeping the blinds down to keep the direct sunlight at bay.
Finally, how much does nursery air conditioning cost to run?
In fact, according to Origin Energy, you can run a small room air conditioner, say a 2.5kW reverse cycle A/C unit, for just 22 cents an hour.
And given that unless it’s stifling hot or bitterly cold, you won’t be running the air conditioner in the nursery all night and all day, so your energy bill won’t send chills up your spine.
In short, nursery air conditioning gives you one less thing to worry about – and you definitely won’t have to worry about it running up a huge bill. And for more ways to save money on air con, download our FREE Do’s and Don’ts Check List.
