The thermal comfort at home is an important element, both for the well-being in your home, to limit your energy bills and for the environment. In addition to improving the thermal qualities of the house (insulation, waterproofing …) you can choose a heating and air conditioning economical and efficient.
To cool your interior several degrees, when the outside temperature rises too high, you can install an air conditioner at home. There are different models:
a mobile device, used for the occasional cooling of a room.
the device is fixed and divides into two parts. One outside that captures and cools the air and the other inside that pulsates the fresh air. It is a more expensive system but also more complete than the previous one, which makes it possible to cool a larger volume.
the most complex system, consisting of an outdoor unit and several inside, which can therefore air-conditioning several rooms, as in an office building for example.
Namely : Some models of air conditioning are reversible, that is to say they can produce both fresh air and hot air.
To choose your air conditioner, rely on the price, of course, but not only. His power is an important criterion. It is generally considered that a power of 100W can air-condition a living room and 80W, a room the size of a room. The size of the room, but also its level of insulation and its sunshine are to be taken into account. Do not forget to consider its average consumption, as well as the size of equipment.

How much are you to occupy the house? What is its surface, its level of insulation …?
You can choose between:
the convectors are distributed in each room and fed by the electrical network of the house. There are different types of convectors, more or less efficient. The starting price is slightly lower, but its daily use is expensive.
fuel less and less used, fuel being increasingly expensive and polluting. However, its ability to heat quickly makes it a heating mode suitable for large areas.
it uses renewable energy, wood and can be declined because of the number of existing appliances (fireplace, closed hearth, insert, various types of stoves, stove, boiler, pellet stove). Use of heating, wood consumption, aesthetics … it all depends on the type of wood heating.
The heat pump:
this system makes it possible to take advantage of a natural and renewable resource (air, water or earth) to recover calories. The heat is then transmitted into the house either as hot air or via convectors. So there are different types of heat pumps, the choice will depend on your budget, the house and your use. Some are also reversible.
