Three myths about Air Conditioning that may cost you money
There is so much random information and “helpful” tips being passed around about air conditioning and keeping your home cool. However,a lot of misinformation is out there,much of the advice you hear may just be myths.Whether you’re planning to get an air conditioner for your home or you already own one,knowing fact from fiction is important in helping you save energy and reducing your electricity bills.
Myth 1: The bigger the aircon, the better.
Air conditioners are designed to cool the air throughout your home at a certain rate.When you use one that’s too big for your room, it will cool the air as if you had a bigger space, thus consuming more energy to produce the same results as an aircon of the right size. Your air conditioner doesn’t have to be the biggest, it should fit your home just perfectly. It may run a bit longer, but it will keep you more comfortable and utilize less electricity.
Myth 2: You only need to clean the air filter at least once a year.
Your air conditioner needs to breathe. Dirty air filters hinder the flow of air in your AC unit which then forces it to work harder. Regular cleaning at least after every two to three months is recommended, or more frequently if you run your aircon for long hours or if you have pets and people with allergies at home. This will keep your air conditioner running efficiently and can even decrease wasted energy by up to 10 percent.
Myth 3: Aircons consume too much energy.
Nowadays, AC units are required to come out with efficiency ratings and technologies that significantly reduce energy costs. In fact, what you need to ensure is that your aircon is installed properly as even the most efficiently-rated air conditioners can cost more to operate if they are poorly installed and improperly-sized. Studies have shown that these two factors greatly impact efficiency and cost you significantly in terms of energy consumption.
