During the extreme heat of Summer, your AC might be required to be kept on all through the day and night- resulting in much higher electricity bills. This, however, can be reduced by making sure that your AC is running efficiently and not working overtime. Here are 6 tips that can help you curb your electric bills during the Summer months, by ensuring efficient functioning of your AC:
Keep your AC running between 24-26 degrees.
Try to run your AC at a temperature that’s 1 degree warmer than you usually would- this can really cut down on the cooling costs and fetch you a lower electric bill for the month.
Keep your windows covered to reduce heat exchange
You can use drapes or roller blinds that are light-colored on the outside, to reflect the heat. Keep your windows open to allow cool breeze to flow through your rooms and for cross-ventilation.
Keep the size of your room in mind when buying a new AC (or replacing an old one)
A cooling system that’s too small for the space will need to run constantly to cool it, causing more power consumption. On the contrary, one that’s too big for the space might cause short-cycling, resulting in more wear and tear and energy consumption.
Keep the blowers, filters and coils clean
Regularly cleaning the blowers, and replacing the filter and/or coil as and when necessary, ensures that the dirt and dust don’t make your cooling unit work harder to consume more electricity and energy. If you don’t know how you can do it yourself, you can easily hire an expert technician for AC cleaning and maintenance services.
Unplug all electronic devices when not in use
All electronic devices, including your TV, washing machine, microwave oven, music system, and cell phone chargers, draw power and release heat- even on being turned off. Hence, unplugging them is essential, even if you’re not using them.
Call for servicing/maintenance of your AC at least once every year
Get an annual maintenance scheduled for your AC, to ensure it is functioning at peak efficiency to maintain an optimum temperature.
