Remember to replace your air filters
Filters work great when new, but after use they become more porous and let more dirt particles escape through. Replace your filters to ensure your unit runs efficiently.
Save while you sleep Turn off at night!
Keep your air conditioning on during the day, and off at night. The reason is simple. Air is naturally cooler later in the evening, so take advantage of that by turning off the air conditioning and opening a window.
Clean off visible debris from return air vents and outlets
Cleaning your unit is required every few months, which will help to ensure that your air conditioning system isn’t working harder than it needs to and help you conserve energy.
Take note of any noise
Quite often the earliest sign of an air conditioning system fault can be heard in the form of a squealing, grinding, or thumping noise. Always monitor your system to make sure it is running smoothly.
Correctly set thermostats and timers
As a guide, somewhere between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius is where you should set the air conditioning thermostat. Set the system at a temperature comfortable enough that it won’t make your unit work too hard. For every single degree of cooling you can do without, you’re saving on your energy bill.
Shade out the sun
Shade is your friend when it comes to keeping cool. An air conditioning unit won’t need to work as hard and will maintain the cooler temperature, easier. Where possible, close blinds, drapes, awnings and curtains.
