Combat Seasonal Changes Effectively With These Simple Tips
Every season changes and that change demands a different level of performance from your air-conditioner. While many industry leading models share comparable properties, but their specificities are derived more so from what season they function best in.
The bigger the change on the exterior of the home the harder your unit is going to have to work to minimise the change on the interior. It is important to choose the model of air-conditioner that is not only going to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer but that gets you through all the seasonal changes throughout the year.
Not only does maybe the type of air-conditioner have to change but the way you use it might as well. So, it’s a great idea to get a few techniques and habits under your belt so you can be prepared for every season.
What’s the right system for you?
There are a few distinct systems that are commonly installed in residential homes, the first being central air conditioners and heat pumps which are designed to cool the entire house. The second, is individual room air conditioners designed to focus on a specific space.
Both are great options they adapt well to season changes but provide an option for residents with diverse needs. Central air conditioners and heat pumps are a great option for spaces that are consistently occupied such as family homes or offices and provide a great overall temperature control and consistency.
If the home is in a predominantly warm climate and there isn’t a big change in temperature evaporative air conditioning would be the preferred option. The air is blown through cooling pads, the water is evaporated and the heat in the air is absorbed, which lowers the air temperature.
If residents are spending most of their time in one space a single wall mounted room unit would suffice as there is no point paying to cool/heat an unused room.
The do’s and don’ts of Air Conditioning
To keep you’re A/C running smoothly follow these steps and you will benefit from great climate control for your home as well as increased cost effectiveness.
Keep it on – Don’t set the thermostat to freezing or fiery as it will take the house the same time to cool down to your desired temperature. You will use more energy from your fans and cause the temperature in the home to fluctuate.
Keep it clean – Make sure you’re A/C’s filter and fan blades are clean and void of debris. It will improve energy efficiency and performance.
Keep it consistent – Keep your thermostat at a constant temperature ranging between 18°C and 20°C for living areas
Keep good timing – Regulate the homes temperatures at specific times of the day with a timer.
