Refrigeration, air conditioning, fan, and air conditioning unit advantages and disadvantages.
On hot days, what is the best device to cool off? Fan, air conditioner, air conditioner, air circulator or air humidifier? There are many equipment options. Therefore, before investing your money it is necessary to know the characteristics, applications, advantages, and disadvantages. Thinking about it the World of Electrical decided to bring in this article, the TOP 5 of devices used in the heat, so come on guys!
The first device on the list is the fan, which is relatively practical, economical and makes the air circulate through the environment, making the place cooler and with a lower thermal sensation. There are several types of fans, but the most common are the ceiling, wall and table fans. The main advantages of the fan are:
Possibility to be installed in various environments
Lightweight structure, making it easy to transport
Speed handling simplicity
Investment to buy a fan is relatively low
Lower consumption of electricity compared to an air conditioner
As we know, all devices have advantages and disadvantages, and the fan is no different from other devices. The main disadvantages are:
It does not humidify the ambient air;
On very hot days it is not very efficient, because it has no cooling capacity;
Limiting the range of the wind arrow may be less effective in larger environments;
On very hot days it is not very efficient.
Investment to buy a fan is relatively low.
The second device is the air circulator, very confused with the fan, even considered by some as a category of fan. Even though the air circulator is similar to the fan, its operation is different, since the fan has fixed airflow, that is, with the wind directed to a specific point. The circulator makes the air circulate throughout the environment, creating a wider and more uniform air circulation throughout the space, thus having some advantages such as:
Makes less noise when turned on
The air is distributed, not causing excessive discomfort due to the direct wind to the user
The main disadvantage of the circulator is:
The portable circulator is less efficient in larger spaces, precisely because it has less capacity to refresh these environments.
Quieter because it produces less noise when turned on
Air circulator, very confused with the fan.
The air humidifier is the third device on the list and it has the function of making the environment more acclimatized through the evaporation of water. An important detail to be said is that many people confuse humidifiers and air purifiers, but they are devices with different functions! The humidifier has the function of making the air more humid, while the purifier has the function of filtering and improving air quality. Below are some humidifier advantages.
The function of humidifying the air improves the thermal sensation of the environment;
It has a low maintenance cost;
Reduces problems caused by dust suspension;
In addition to its advantages the humidifier has some disadvantages which are:
Where the humidity is very high, humidifiers have low efficiency;
In places with low temperatures, the humidifier is not recommended, mainly due to the risk of bacteria proliferation;
The function of humidifying the air improves the thermal sensation of the environment.
Many people confuse humidifiers and air purifiers.
Climatizers are devices that have the function of promoting air circulation throughout the environment, in addition to increasing the humidity of the air through the evaporation of water and filtering the air that enters the environment. Depending on the climate control model, it is possible to reduce the room temperature by up to 2 degrees. The main advantages of the air conditioner are:
Function to filter the air that enters the environment;
Low maintenance cost
In some cases, the use of air conditioners in industries can be very important for workers, precisely because they are able to reduce dust suspension considerably. However, the air conditioner has disadvantages such as:
Low efficiency in regions with high humidity, because it makes it difficult for water to evaporate from your reservoir.
In regions where the heat is extremely intense, the air conditioner is not as efficient in reducing the ambient temperature.
Function to filter the air that enters the environment.
The air conditioner can reduce the room temperature by up to 2 degrees.
Last but not least is the famous air conditioning! In relation to the aforementioned appliances, the air conditioning is the most complete, as it meets expectations on hotter days, allowing to control the temperature of the place.
It allows controlling the temperature of the place even in very hot days.
The air conditioning is the most complete.
In the most complete models of air conditioners, in addition to reducing the temperature of the room and ventilating, it also warms the room and purifies the air of the room. Below are some advantages of air conditioning.
It allows to control the temperature of the place even on very hot days;
The filter helps to clean the air, removing dirt particles from the environment.
Even though the air conditioning is more complete than the other appliances, your expenses can be disadvantages for some people because:
Of the appliances mentioned, air conditioning consumes the most electricity,
The air conditioning requires some special care regarding installation and maintenance.
The excellent technology involved in air conditioning that allows the best advantages, also implies these higher expenses, which may be a reason for you to give up buying air conditioning. There are devices on the market that are very efficient and others not so much. Therefore, it is recommended that you choose the models that have the PROCELL seal, which presents the products according to the energy efficiency levels.
