Do you live in an HDB flat? If so, this is the most important message you will ever read! Here’s why: In an HDB flat, everyone shares one common wall… the WALL that separates each flat from its neighbor. This means that all the flats are essentially “connected” by this ONE WALL. This means that EVERY FLAT has a direct impact (in a negative way) on every other flat in the building!
What is the HDB Airconditioning?
Most of us in the HDB (Housing & Development Board) live in areas where the temperature is usually stiflingly hot and sticky. This means that we need to make sure that the aircon in our homes works like a well-oiled machine. But, as experienced aircon contractors will tell you… it’s not so easy. Believe it or not, there are certain things you can do (simple things) to make your aircon work even better!
Good Quality Aircon Installations
With the Singapore government encouraging homeowners to hire good-quality aircon units in their homes, there has been a sudden rise in the demand for AC installation services. With the new aircon installation service unit, you will need to check the location of your AC unit at least twice a year. This is because the location of your AC unit may have changed due to floor level modifications made by the building engineer.
Therefore, you need to reset the thermostat located in your AC unit accordingly. This is because the thermostat is designed to automatically switch on your AC unit when it senses temperatures above your set temperature.
In which places of HBD we can install aircon
- There are three main places you can install an air conditioning unit in your HDB flat: On the ceiling, on the floor or on a wall. Ceiling units are the least desirable because they put the unit far above your head and thus requires you to bend down far more than if the unit was placed on the floor or on a wall.
Ways of Improve the aircon performance
There are 2 primary ways to improve the performance of your home’s air conditioning system.
- The first and most important thing you can do is to make sure your unit is in good shape. A clean, good servicing aircon unit will provide you with many years of trouble-free cooling.
- Next, you should place your unit as far as possible from sources of heat.
