5 Ways To Reduce Your Air Conditioning Costs

A Residential Air Conditioner

As many of us work remotely, we’re home more than ever during the midday heat in Dubbo, QLD. Your energy bills can quickly rise if you run your home’s air conditioner at full blast for long periods. Use these tips to reduce cooling costs and beat the heat.

Save While You Sleep

Here’s a money-saving tip that’s as obvious as day and night. Turn off your air conditioning at night. It’s that simple. You can benefit from the naturally cooler air by turning off your air conditioning and opening your windows in the evening. Maybe you’ll even get a slight breeze to help cool you down.

Thermostats And Timers

When it comes to lowering your air conditioning bill and reducing your energy consumption, every degree counts.

Setting your thermostat at a comfortable temperature will not strain your unit but will still make you feel comfortable. This is one of the most energy-efficient things you can do. As a general guide, the thermostat should be set between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius. You’re saving energy and money whenever you can reduce your cooling levels. It’s possible to save up to 10% by simply setting your air conditioner one degree warmer than normal.

Get Shady

You cannot turn off the sun in a hot Aussie summer, but you can add some shade to cool things off. There’s shade everywhere. Blinds, shutters, drapes, whatever you choose, will keep your home cooler. This means that your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard, and your energy bill will be lower. 

Your air conditioning won’t have to constantly run to maintain the ideal temperature if you close windows, blinds, shutters, or drapes to keep out the hot air and the sun’s rays. You can drastically decrease your heating costs by protecting your windows from heat absorption. You can stop some of the heat from the sun entering your air-conditioned sanctuary with tinted windows, and your unit won’t work so hard.

Find The Heat Emitting Culprits

Televisions, computers, printers, the lamp in the corner, the oven in the kitchen, all generate heat, forcing your air conditioner to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. You will immediately reduce your air conditioning energy consumption by turning them off.

Keep It Clean

We have one more way to help you save money on your air conditioning during the summer. Make sure your air conditioner’s filter is cleaned or replaced regularly for optimum efficiency. An air conditioner with a dirty filter works harder, using more electricity and costing more.
