Top Energy Saving & Air Conditioning Tips

A simple explanation to describe the way air conditioning works is ‘it cools the air and removes dust and dirt through a filter. This lowers humidity and makes the temperature of the air comfortable to be in’. Although this is a fantastic solution to warm, hot and sticky days it will also account for most of your house hold budget.

I have researched and found various ways you can save energy and money through air conditioning, the first most important step is to buy a reasonable sized air conditioner for your property.

Air Conditioner Size

Unit size is important because if you choose one too big for your room it will not work as effectively. Cooling the room down way to quickly and making you feel cold and uncomfortable. Turning the unit on and off frequently wastes electricity.

A unit too small can get over worked and still will not cool your room down. You will probably have this on all the time, again it will waste electricity.

Size is one of the most important factors to consider, the best thing to do is seek a professional opinion before having anything installed.

High efficiency air conditioning appliances

Always make energy efficiency an important factor to consider. If it’s higher priced it is considered a great purchase because the cost to operate it is less.


If you are installing your unit or hiring a professional make sure all specific installation instructions are followed carefully. An improperly installed product can waste a lot of energy and electricity. You will need to ensure your electrical system meets the correct requirements and is not exposed to the sun. Install on a even surface that is flat.
If you are not sure about any of the above always consult a professional.

Air Conditioning Maintenance and Operation

Clean and replace air filters, if they get to dust this can effect the way your unit works and waste electricity. During the colder season, cover your unit and store away.
Make sure furniture does not obstruct the air conditioning vents, it needs space to work.
