Reduce AC loads
We all use air conditioners, especially in summers, to beat the heat. Air conditioning, however, is an energy intensive process. Designer ceilings optimize your air conditioning usage and reduce those inflated summer electricity bills. For example, if your room is 12 x 12 sq. ft. and your false ceiling is one foot below the actual ceiling, it will cut down 12 x 12 x 1 cubic space that would otherwise have needed to be cooled by the AC, reducing your energy bill.
False ceilings are suspended a few inches below the slab on a metal framework which can be made of any construction material, based on the budget. Since there is a gap between the two layers, the air within is trapped. This acts as insulation that keeps your room cool by preventing the heat from outside coming in. And this, in turn, further reduces your AC load.
What’s more, since the air filled insulation between the two layers of ceilings keeps the room naturally cool, you often don’t need to use the air conditioner at all!
