This is a great time of year to get your Air Conditioning unit serviced, and the most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your Air Con is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged or dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce the system’s efficiency significantly. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioners energy consumption by 15%.
It’s still pretty chilly in some parts of the country, so don’t forget that your Air Con also has a heating facility – and it is 35% cheaper to warm your home with an air conditioner, than a conventional heater. You can set your air con on the auto function, so that when the air con reaches the required temperature, the unit will switch off – and an added plus is that it gives you evenly distributed air.
Some models have purifying air filter so also purify the air whilst heating the room.
If you’re looking at buying a new air conditioner for the summer and want something that is energy efficient, consider buying inverter air cons that will help you save up to 40% on your energy bill.
All air cons now come with the new R410a environmentally friendly gas, and all Samsung and LG inverter units come with a 10 year compressor warranty.
