Winter is definitely here and it can only mean one thing – increased electricity bills. While there are energy-efficient air conditioning units to invest in that will cut down heating costs, not everyone can upgrade to the latest technology at the drop of a hat. Air conditioning systems are known to be costly.
But, not to fear. We’ve compiled a few tips below to help you keep your comfort levels high and your energy bills low.
1. Keep Aircon Filters and Vents Clean
These elements help your air conditioning unit perform efficiently. Any time your aircon operates, it draws air in over the coils along with any dust and dirt that’s present. If you allow the debris to build up, it will make it harder for your system to pull air through.
2. Opt for a lower temperature
Your thermostat temperature affects the energy consumption. While you might want to ramp it up to make it nice and toasty, it’s advised to keep it at a low but comfortable setting – 19°C to 21°C will do. Don’t turn your aircon off when you leave the house since it will have to work harder to warm up your home when you return, thus using more electricity.
3. Unplug appliances not in use
Any appliance plugged into outlets are still using power even if they are turned off. You can reduce costs by unplugging anything you’re not using.
4.Regular Air Con Maintenance
Make sure to schedule a regular maintenance with Airfreeze for optimal air conditioner efficiency. If your aircon is outdated, it’s better to invest in replacing it than to pay profuse amounts of money to try and fix it. It will only keep breaking and unnecessarily increase your electricity bill.
