HINTS AND TIPS

Researchers estimate that a 1°C increase on a thermostat setting will save about 10% on your energy usage.

AlphaCool offers the following tips to help reduce your power bill and stay cool at the same time with one of our quality systems:

  • Regularly cleaned filters will ensure optimum efficiency
     
  • Keep windows and doors closed (except for evaporative air conditioners which require some air flow)
     
  • Buy an air conditioning system with the best star rating you can afford. For each additional star you will save about 15 % in running costs
     
  • Set the temperature setting to the highest that you feel comfortable in summer. Usually 24-27°C is adequate
     
  • Avoid placing appliances that give off heat, such as lamps or TVs, near a thermostat
     
  • Avoid continually adjusting the setting. It will not cool your home any faster and may result in excessive cooling and unnecessary expense
     
  • Movement sensors can save you power when the room is unoccupied. If a hot day is forecast, turn on the air conditioner early rather than waiting for the inside temperature to become unbearable
  • Close blinds or drapes to stop temperature loss through windows
     
  • Close doors to rooms you don’t intend to be in. Shade or cover on exterior walls can reduce heat transfer into buildings
     
  • Install ceiling insulation with a minimum rating suitable to your location to keep the heat out of your home. This will help to ensure your air conditioner can work more efficiently. If your air conditioner is old consider installing a new energy efficient model
