3 Ways to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Efficiently
1. Ensure the outdoor unit is clean:
If your outdoor unit is near long grass, or in a dusty spot, you might need to pay it some more attention.
Why? Your air conditioning unit will work better if you keep your outdoor unit clear from grass and dirt.
Also, it’s important to keep the outdoor coil clean to help the unit breathe.
2. Stick to the optimum operating temperature:
The optimum operating temperature for an air conditioning unit is typically 22-24 degrees.
Depending on the season, we understand how tempting it can be to set the temperature a few degrees hotter or colder. But best to avoid this as it will be better for your air conditioner in the long run (it will last longer) – and your bank balance!
By setting the temperature outside of the optimum range, your system will be working harder to keep the area cooler or warmer – meaning the unit need replacing sooner and you’ll be paying more on your power bill.
3. Regular servicing:
We recommend having your air conditioning unit serviced (both ducted and split systems) at least once a year to keep the unit running efficiently.
A service can help to keep the coil clean, therefore letting the unit breathe and work as it is intended to.
It also assists to keep the condensate drain clean from debris, which in turn lets the condensate run freely through the drain.
Maintaining these parts of your unit, helps to ensure your air quality is clean and fresh.
