How to Save Electricity Bills Without Sacrificing Aircon
Comfort is always a priority, and there’s nothing more annoying than being hot and sticky in your own home and you have to find a good and affordable aircon servicing company to solve the problems. Here are a few tips to save electricity bills without sacrificing aircon?
Always Check Aircon’s Filter is Clean
It’s surprising how many people let their aircon filters sit and get dirty. An aircon always cools a room better after having a good clean. While you’re at it, have your unit serviced once every quarter. Doing so helps you make sure it cools the room faster, using less energy which helps you save money on electric bills.
Use Dark Color Curtains on Windows
It’s always nice to have natural light coming in, but direct and constant sunlight can quickly heat up a room. That hot air can remain caught inside if the ventilation isn’t optimal, which is the case in many condominiums.
Black blinds or curtains will prevent that from happening. They’re worth the investment. Always remind yourself to put them down before going to sleep, in order to keep the morning and afternoon sun out.
Don’t Use too many Light Bulbs
Light bulbs can release heat. Turn them off when left in a room or bathroom. Hallway lights don’t need to be on if your space is well-lit.
You might also want to change your light bulbs for LED lights, as these emit less heat and are generally more energy-efficient.
Use Electric Fans
Electric fans are everywhere in Singapore, but they tend to be mistaken. Fans don’t cool a room down. In fact, studies show that they slightly increase the temperature of a room. What they do is move air around.
Fan placing is key. Think about what doors or windows can remain open, and where you spend most of your time in a room. You can place one at a window, facing out, and another one at an open doorway, facing in. This placement ensures hot air is blown out while new air can be blown in. Also, make sure the airflow isn’t blocked by a cupboard or other furniture.
Always Use Aircon’s Timer
Sometimes, you don’t need an aircon to run constantly for the room to feel cool. An efficient way to reduce costs is to put your aircon on a timer and make sure a fan is running steadily. Once the aircon turns off, the fan will keep the cold air moving around a room for a longer period of time, making the room feel cooler to sustained.
