What would you say if we told you that there are a lot of things you can do to make your air conditioner work more effectively?
You might think, “I should have known. Who doesn’t know this?” But the truth is that most people don’t realize how they could be getting better performance out of their air conditioner without even trying.
In today’s blog post, we will discuss some tips given by our air cond experts at Petaling Jaya for maximizing your A/C usage and comfort levels.
Regularly Have Your AC Unit Serviced
One way to get the most out of your AC is to have it serviced on a regular basis. This will ensure that the system is up to date with new technologies and it can be properly maintained by professionals who know what they’re doing.
With a regularly serviced airconditioner, you won’t have to constantly deal with problems and you can find issues before they become major problems.
It’s important to remember that regular servicing is not only cheaper in the long run, but it will also ensure your system runs efficiently.
AC maintenance recommends that you have a professional service check-up on your AC unit twice per year for optimal performance and efficiency levels.
You’ll surely see a huge difference in how your AC operates, and you’ll be grateful for the service.
Clean Your Conditioning System’s Condenser Coils
Your conditioning unit’s condenser coils are one of the elements that make it work and it’s important to regularly clean them.
The condensers’ coils are those tubes that collect the iced air from your property so it can be cooled down for you, but if they’re not cleaned then they will overheat which eventually leads to a breakdown in the system.
It’s also worth noting that dirty filters cause poor AC performance because your unit will not be able to cool the air as well, and you’ll end up paying more for utilities.
If your AC is running constantly then it’s time to get down on your hands and knees to clean those condenser coils!
By doing so, you can get the most out of your air conditioner and save some money on your energy bill.
It is recommended to clean your condenser coils at least once every two weeks to maintain optimal performance.
Not only will this help your AC perform better, but you’ll also be able to save money on your energy bill because of the increased efficiency.
Just clean those condenser coils and get more from your AC!
Make Use of Curtains to Help Your Airconditioner
Not many are aware of this trick but it’s pretty efficient in helping your AC do its job.
You can make use of curtains to help provide a more comfortable temperature for those in the room by blocking out some sunlight during the day and trapping heat at night.
It’s recommended that you close your curtains around mid-afternoon and open them up again before bedtime, this will allow cooler air from the outside to come into the house and help cool it down.
This way you get the best of both worlds, a cooler room during the day to keep your AC from working as hard and then warmer at night when most people are sleeping so they don’t overheat.
With this in mind, it’s good to purchase curtains made out of materials that are easy to clean and will resist heat, like cotton or polyester.
Keep Your AC Unit Turned On During Hot Days
Many people think that turning off your AC can save you more money. However, for split-type airconditioners, you can actually save more on funds if you don’t turn it off.
Why is this so? Well, for starters, the air conditioner has to work harder when it’s turned on again and this is a waste of money. Turning the AC off can cause your room temperature to get hotter, so you’ll need more energy (and thus spend more) because your unit will have to work that much harder to cool down the inside of your house.
However, with an airconditioner that is constantly on, the temperature of your room is constantly being cooled.
This will cause you to spend less on energy because it doesn’t have to work as hard and you’ll also be able to keep the cool air in longer by not letting all that cold air escape out into the rest of your house when people are coming and going through the doors.
This blog post has covered some of the most important aspects when it comes to getting the best out of your air conditioning unit.
