The weather can be unpredictable. One moment it’s raining and then the next it could be scorching. But even though we can’t control the weather, science has given us the privilege to have control over our homes and offices through air conditioning and heating systems. Air conditioners can dramatically change the temperature inside an enclosed space and what’s more is we can have the option to choose the temperature we want. If we want to make the room cooler, all we need to do is adjust the thermostat.
Since we rely on air conditioning so much, living without it can greatly affect our level of comfort, which is why we need to take responsible steps to ensure that our air conditioners remain efficient for as long as possible. Below are some steps we need to take to preserve the efficiency of our cooling and heating systems.
- Adjusting The Thermostat
There are a lot of people who leave their air conditioners at a fixed temperature, usually at 24 Celsius. There are also those who have made a habit out of increasing the temperature when no one is around. If you’re like this, just ensure that you won’t dip it below 24 Celsius with the intention of making the room cool faster because regardless of the setting, air conditioners will always cool or heat a room at the same rate.
- Checking Doors And Windows
Are you aware that drafty doors and windows can actually release more than 25% of your home or office’s heat? Check your doors and windows if they need replacing. The telltale signs that you need to have them replaced include broken or cracked windowpanes, visible condensation inside windowsills, torn leather around doors and higher energy bills. By changing your windows and doors, you can significantly save on costs.
- Regular Cleaning
Your air conditioner can get dirty and dusty overtime both in its interior and exterior surfaces. When you don’t have it cleaned by professionals on a regularly basis, it will affect its ability to heat your home or office and it will also increase your power bill.
