White And Grey Box Fan Of Air Conditioner

Your air conditioning system is a faithful companion providing much-needed cool relief on a hot summer’s day. 

Did you know there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your air conditioning system operates at its peak efficiency, keeping you comfortable while saving energy and money?

We reveal a few practical tips and tricks that will help you maximise the benefits of your air conditioning system at home.

Choose the Right Temperature Settings

By selecting energy-efficient cooling settings, you can reduce your energy consumption and lower your utility bills.

One way to do this is by setting a sleep mode on your air conditioner. Sleep mode adjusts the temperature and fan speed to ensure a comfortable sleeping environment while conserving energy. This setting gradually adjusts the temperature throughout the night, saving energy without sacrificing comfort.

It’s also recommended to set your thermostat at a temperature that’s slightly higher during the day when you aren’t at home. This helps to further reduce energy usage while still maintaining a comfortable indoor environment when you return.

Keep Your AC Unit Well-Maintained

Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your AC unit running efficiently and prolonging its lifespan. One important maintenance aspect is cleaning the air filters regularly. Over time, dust, dirt, and other particles can accumulate on the filters, reducing the airflow and requiring your AC unit to work harder.

By cleaning or replacing the air filters every one to three months, you can ensure that your unit operates at peak performance and maintains good air quality in your home.

It’s advisable to schedule professional air conditioning maintenance at least once a year. A professional technician from SJK Collective can thoroughly inspect and clean your AC unit, identify any potential issues, and make necessary repairs or adjustments to keep your system running smoothly.

Optimise Your Home’s Insulation

For optimal energy efficiency and comfort, here are some key weatherproofing techniques and energy-efficient options that can help you achieve this:

1. Seal air leaks:

Identify and seal any gaps or cracks in your home’s walls, windows, doors, and attic to prevent air leakage and heat transfer.

2. Insulate:

Install insulation in your walls, floors, and attic to reduce heat transfer and maintain a consistent indoor temperature.

3. Upgrade to energy-efficient windows:

Consider replacing current windows with energy-efficient ones that have low-emissivity coatings and multiple panes to minimise heat transfer.

By following these simple yet effective steps, you can ensure that your air conditioning system operates at its best, providing you with optimal comfort and saving you money on energy bills.
