At Tony Stephens Refrigeration, we believe that air conditioning should be available to homeowners and businesses, without the worry of high energy bills and constant visits to the thermostat. Air con installation, conducted by seasoned professionals, will ensure that your AC system runs as efficiently as possible. However, for best results, we recommend the following tips that help you take the efficiency of your system into your own hands.
Temperature Regulation When Nobody is Home
A significant amount of energy usage occurs if your AC is operational when nobody is home. We recommend programming your thermostat, or adjusting it before leaving, to a temperature that will make the system work less. Keeping your home’s temperature warmer than required during the summer months, or slightly cooler in winter, will save energy and allow you to readjust it to your preferred temperature when you’re back home.
Insulation is Everything
A well insulated home can increase energy efficiency by up to 30%. By sealing doors, windows and other openings in the home with quality insulation or weatherproofing, your home air conditioning will have to work a lot less to cool or heat the home. By preventing the loss of precious AC, your system can change the temperature of a room much faster, while also keeping your air filters clean for much longer.
Choose a Quality Thermostat
Not all thermostats are created equal. A professional air con installation company will provide customers with a wide range of thermostats with varying levels of efficiency, control features and functions. Choosing the right thermostat for your system can greatly improve the functionality of your AC.
Regular Maintenance is Key
The best way to get the most out of your AC system is to create a regular maintenance schedule with your air conditioning supplier. Air conditioning professionals have the knowledge and technical expertise to run proper diagnostics checks on AC systems to spot potential problems before they occur and to keep components in perfect working condition.
