At Comfort Solutions, we aim to help you find the right air conditioning system for your home.
When you choose air conditioning on the Sunshine Coast, there are some things you should know about using it so that you can get the most from it.
Proper care and maintenance ensure that your cooling system works optimally for many years to come.
Use this handy do’s and don’ts guide to help you maximise the function and lifespan of your air conditioner.
Do Check the Thermostat
The temperature that you set your air conditioner to plays a big role in how much energy it uses and how high your costs are.
Even changing the temperature just a degree or two can make a big difference.
Try raising the temperature a bit and you might not even notice the change.
At the same time, avoid raising and lowering the temperature all the time, which makes the unit work harder and ultimately costs you more money.
Do Use it On Hot Days
Maybe you want to save money or energy so you don’t turn your air conditioner on, even when it’s very hot outside.
This is a mistake. You have your cooling system to keep you comfortable in your home, but being overheated can cause health problems, such as heat stroke and dehydration.
These problems can be very dangerous so it’s better to invest in running the air conditioner to keep them from happening to you.
Don’t Forget to Clean the Unit
You’ll need to keep your air conditioner clean to ensure that it always works like it should.
That means checking, cleaning, and changing the air filters according to the manufacturer directions.
You should also check the outside unit and make sure it’s clean and free of built up debris.
If you notice any problems with your cooling system, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can help you get things back in tip-top shape.
Don’t Forget About the Vents
You can optimise airflow and ensure adequate cooling by positioning your air vents properly.
Make sure the vents aren’t being blocked by any furniture, decor or window treatments and aim vents into the rooms so they can cool efficiently.
If you have rooms that you don’t use often, close the vents so that you can get that cool air in the parts of your house that you do use.
