6 Tips on How to Reduce Your Air Conditioning Billadmin
As summer season approaching, many of us will turn on their air conditioners to keep it nice and cool at our households. Since the overall average temperature during summer is rising and we have more warm days, energy bills are increasing as well.
To reduce your air conditioning bills NØRDIS experts gathered a few useful tips on how to keep air cool at your home more smartly.
Get the right size air conditioner
Choose your AC wisely depending on your needs and space. On one hand, AC that is too powerful for your household can cost you extra money and issues like high humidity or early wear-and-tear. On the other hand, if the AC is too small you might end up not cooling your room properly. Calculate your room size and choose AC depending on your room location and room specifications.
Leave your AC on only during daytime
Even though some summer days get so hot you do not even want to leave your house, evenings can still be a bit chilly. On days like this do not forget to turn off your AC in the evenings and more importantly – do not leave it on while you sleep. Opening a window during nighttime might be enough to cool down your room temperature.
Choose a more energy-efficient unit
Before purchasing a new AC do your research on the energy rating of your device and invest in a more energy-efficient unit. It will help you reduce your electricity bills and save your money in a long time run. NØRDIS ACs range includes a wide selection of energy-efficient devices including On/Off and Inverter options.
Set thermostat and timer
Neither sticking your head into a fridge nor keeping your room temperature extremely low is a smart choice during those hot days. An average temperature in your living space should vary between 22°C and 24°C. Another simple rule is keeping your room at a decent temperature by cutting it by 8 degrees. For example, if the temperature outside is around 33 degrees, you should leave your AC on 25-24°C.
Another useful bonus in your AC is a timer. Some of NØRDIS AC units have a built-in timer so you don’t have to worry about turning off your AC as soon as the sun goes down. By setting hours of operation you can achieve maximum energy efficiency and save up.
Maintain clean filter
Clogged with dust and grime AC filter can cause your AC to work twice as hard to produce cool air and lead to some technical troubles. To maintain optimum efficiency, clean your filter every few months and replace it when needed.
Keep it dark
Another effective way to cool down your house is by blocking direct sunrays. Get blinds, roller shutters, or whatever is suited for your windows and shutdown direct sunlight. Light-colored materials can also help deflect sun heat too. This way your AC unit will not have to work so hard, and your energy bill will be minimized.
