Tips to Reducing the Running Costs of your Air Conditioner

You’ve all heard the buzz of going green and energy saving. The green movement seems to have taken over the world, inspiring ordinary, environmentally conscious people. There are a variety of explanations for why you should consider reducing energy consumption.

Reducing energy usage reduces the amount of environmentally sustainable carbon emissions. Carbon emissions have a significant role to play in climate change, which in recent years is known to be the source of intense natural disasters.

That is why saving energy should become a part of our lifestyle, especially at home. Your air conditioner is, in all probability, the primary appliance that causes your electric bill to rise. You are accustomed to high energy bills and see this as perfectly normal – how can you help reduce your power bill?

Below are some of the top energy-saving tips for air conditioners, which could lead to a reduced tab of utilities by the end of the month.

  1. Have curtains in your room. You may want to limit cold air escaping and let the heat come in. Therefore, drawing the curtains on hot and humid days is suggested. Not only will it help you to keep the warm air out, but it will also allow your air conditioning unit to function at a steady rate. Moreover, your home won’t be exposed to temperature changes, either. And to you, it’ll be a win-win scenario!
  2. Have a ceiling fan. Hot air circulates in the house via ceiling fans, and that means your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to pump cold air into the room. The improved circulation of air will also allow you to set your thermostat four degrees higher without decreasing comfort. Ceiling fans use less power, so they help the machine do its job better.
  3. Use built-in energy-saving programmers and features. It’s the best time to start using your unit’s energy-efficient settings that you never used before. This way, it will allow your air conditioner to function efficiently and prevent increased energy consumption. If you’re looking to bring a new unit home, then it’s suggested to go to the market’s best inverter. Choosing an air conditioner inverter would allow you to reduce power bills by as much as 20-25 percent compared to a traditional model.
  4. Set the right and optimal temperature. Set the temperature of the unit to about 24 degrees Celsius. This will make your environment more comfortable while saving energy consumption and cost. Remember, every time you reduce the temperature by one degree, the Air Conditioner will use approximately 5% more power.
  5. Have your unit cleaned by a professional.  Choose the best cleaning and sanitizing company that will provide a thorough clean of your air conditioning unit. When you schedule a cleaning and sanitizing appointment with a HydroKleen trained technician, your AC will be inspected, cleaned, and sanitized to ensure that it operates at optimum levels and that there are no underlying problems. Microbial pollutants are removed and you will Breathe Healthy Air™.   It’s an easy way to safeguard your investment and the comfort of your home, all with one simple step.

The Air Conditioning System: The Retrospective History and Overall Benefits

This innovation, once considered a luxury, is now necessary, allowing us to cool homes, businesses, hospitals, data centres, laboratories, and other buildings that are vital to our economy and to our everyday lives. In fact, air temperature is so critical to us that the effect of cooling and heating can account for 20% to 50% of energy used in homes.

Current commercial and residential air conditioning technology, like other significant breakthroughs, is the result of a series of developments by scientists and inventors who have challenged themselves to come up with innovative solutions to day-to-day problems.

A Brief History

In the 1840s, physicist and inventor Dr. John Gorrie of Florida suggested the concept of cooling cities to alleviate people of “high-temperature evils.” Gorrie claimed that cooling was the secret to preventing diseases such as malaria and making patients more comfortable. But his primitive method for cooling hospital rooms involved ice to be transported from the frozen lakes and streams in the lakes to Florida.

Gorrie started experimenting with the idea of artificial cooling to get around this costly logistic problem. He invented the machine that produced ice using a horse, water, wind-driven sails, or steam-powered compressor, and in 1851 was awarded a patent for it.

Willis Haviland Carrier, a professional engineer who began experimenting with the laws of humidity control. This is to majorly solve an application problem at a printing plant in Brooklyn, NY, that helped the invention of the first modern air-conditioner in 1902.

Borrowing from the principles of mechanical refrigeration developed in earlier years, Carrier’s machine sent air through coils filled with cold water. In 1933, an air conditioner was developed by the Carrier Air Conditioning Company of America using a belt-driven condensing unit and associated blower, mechanical controls, and evaporator coil, and this system became the industry standard.

The Change of the Game

Ever since its invention, cleaning and sanitising air conditioner units became a challenge to major industries. As our planet became warmer and warmer, more people purchased air conditioner units. This makes air conditioner units become not only a luxury, but a need.

Many market factors led to the slow rate of innovation in the air-conditioning (AC) industry, with consumer emphasis on low first cost as opposed to life-cycle costs being the main factor.

This led the AC industry to concentrate on economies of scale, resulting in a highly concentrated market. The AC manufacturers achieve high sales volumes by selling units to customers at low prices; the energy efficiencies of such units merely match or exceed the minimum energy efficiency requirements marginally.

The Importance of Air Conditioners and Breathing Healthy Air

With air conditioners, we can access cool or warm air to aid our comfort, health, and overall well-being. But how do we know if what we breathe is healthy?

Cleaning your air conditioner is vitally important, just like servicing your car.  If the filters are clogged and dirty, the natural airflow is impeded, making the machine work harder than it should. Therefore, when your evaporator coil is coated with mould, bacteria, dirt or dust, it is unable to provide your home with clean, hygienic air.

Air conditioning systems are expensive appliances from which you expect a great deal, especially in extreme heat. Maintaining clean air conditioning systems will reap many benefits for you, both in the short and the long term.

  • To Protect Your Health and Well-Being. Dirt and debris accumulate inside the unit with prolonged use. If your unit is not regularly cleaned, these accumulations will be released into your home and will affect your family’s health.
  • To Save Money. Filters, coils, and fins of an air conditioner require routine cleaning to make the unit work efficiently and effectively. Neglecting an annual clean will see a gradual decline in the efficiency and a rise in energy costs.
  • To Make Your Unit Last Longer. Eventually, leaving air conditioners working in a polluted state will lead to more significant problems and total failure. As the air conditioner unit collects more dust and debris, the unit is susceptible to overheating because the evaporator coils cannot work efficiently.

Overall, when our planet challenges us, we need a safe home to stay in where we can Breathe Healthy Air™. However, without a proper clean, this cannot be achieved.

At HydroKleen, we believe that a quality air conditioner clean and sanitise is imperative to supporting the air quality in your home. A dirty air conditioner will simply recycle the microbial pollutants throughout your home.

When you schedule an appointment with a HydroKleen technician, your employing a professional and your AC will be inspected, cleaned, and sanitized to ensure that it operates at optimum levels and that there are no underlying problems. Most importantly, your family will Breathe Healthy Air™!

The Difference a Professional Makes

It’s generally known that dust and mould can cause a whole host of health problems around the home or office space. If you have a dirty air conditioning unit, those with skin conditions, allergies, hay fever, or asthma may be particularly aware of this. We all agree that it is vitally important dust, mould and bacteria that is harbored inside AC units is removed efficiently and effectively at least once a year.

The problem with air conditioners is that they accumulate dust and other contaminants over time and become a refuge for bacteria, mould, and dirt. Given that these pollutants are contained inside the unit and this progressive build-up is easy to overlook, you may be weary about turning on your AC unit – these pollutants will circulate throughout your home!

When it comes to cleaning your air conditioner, engaging a professional is a must!  You can wipe over the unit and keep the outdoor unit clear of soil and garden waste, but is this really a proper clean of your AC unit?  Only a professional can clean your entire unit thoroughly.

What difference does a professional make when cleaning an air conditioning unit? Here are a few things you need to know.

  1. All HydroKleen Technicians are specialists in the wet washing of ductless air conditioning units using the HydroKleen System.  A basic clean of an AC unit covers the filters only – a HydroKleen Technician will use their specialized technical training to ensure your entire unit is cleaned properly and brought back to ‘as new’.  Training is done under the guidance of the founder of the HydroKleen system.
