Air Conditioning for Landlords

The Importance of Air Conditioning for Landlords

If you have a home or a flat for an investment, you will know the importance of renting it out, mainly if you use the income from it to pay it off. If your investment property is empty for just a few weeks, it can be challenging to meet the repayments. Even if the property is fully paid for, you still want the income to be available regularly. Air conditioning is one addition that can help you achieve this.

There are very few climates where the weather is perfect all the time. Sometimes it’s too hot; other times of the year, it is really cold. Even in temperate climates, this is the case.  Traditionally, many homes have some heating built into them, but if they don’t, it’s easy to purchase heaters of various kinds. Funnily enough, it’s not so easy to get the air cooled as it is to get it heated.

Yes, there are fans, and these do a good job as long as it’s not too hot. But when the mercury soars, a fan blows hot air around. You can have the plug-in air conditioner that can be wheeled from room to room. It adds water to the top so a fan blows through it and comes out cooler. A bit, anyway. These units are very heavy to move, even though they have wheels. And they are extremely noisy, so they’ve never really taken off. Plus, they are expensive to purchase, considering they are inefficient.

To keep your tenants happy, having split system air conditioning installed in your investment premises is far better. These are far more efficient even than the window-type air conditioners that are noisy and expensive to run, not to mention taking up window space – unless installed in a hole in the wall. Don’t let your tenants do that because there is no guarantee that they will do a decent job of it.
