How can I reduce my electricity costs from my AC? / How can I make my air conditioner work more efficiently?
Your AC efficiency starts all the way from the initial installation of your air conditioner.
Depends on the size of the house the AC unit has to be correct kw size not oversized or undersized. This is why we always conduct a heatload calculation before installation.
Additionally, we recommend inverter systems for split system installations and zoning for ducted AC systems. Both of these accessories can give you more control over your air conditioning which will save you money in your next energy bill.
Generally, your AC should be set at at temperature just a few degrees below or above the outdoor temperature. Setting it extremely cold in summer will not cool your home any quicker and chances you are overworking your system and increasing your energy bills.
General cleanliness of the indoor and outdoor units should be maintained. This means cleaning the filter on a monthly basis and making usre nothing is blocking the condenser unit outside.
