Here are some tips to help you save money on your electricity bill.
1. Keep the temperature stable
Everyone knows that setting the air conditioner temperature to low on very hot and humid days, but that is not the most effective way. Instead of adjusting the temperature many times, set it to a stable level of 18-21 degrees Celsius. This helps keep the room temperature comfortable and the air conditioner does not have to work too much.
2. Using Fan Setting
On days that are not too hot, try turning on the fan mode of the air conditioner. Although it does not make the room as cool as setting the cooling mode, the breeze will be refreshing and help save more electricity.
3. Use a timer
Turning on the air conditioner when no one is home or when it is cool is unnecessary and quite expensive. Instead, use a timer to make sure it only turns on when everyone is at home or about to leave.
4. Only turn on the air conditioner when needed
This is definitely an easy and effective way to use your air conditioner economically. Only turn up when you really need to speak.
5. Don’t Cool Unused Spaces
It is useless to turn on the air conditioner in a place where no one is using it. So turn off the air conditioner if your family members are not in that room.
6. Avoid auto mode
Many people consider automatic mode to be an effective way when using many electronic and refrigeration equipment. However, when the air conditioner runs in automatic mode, if the room is too cold, the machine will re-warm to maintain the original temperature and vice versa. Because the machine works hard continuously to maintain this temperature, it will use a lot of energy, causing electricity loss. Instead, set the temperature between 18-21 degrees Celsius for maximum effect.
7. Use Dehumidification Mode
Usually in the summer, humidity is what causes suffocation for us. Instead of just setting the cooling mode, use the dehumidifying mode of the air conditioner to make you more comfortable.
8. Close the door
Closing the door when using the air conditioner is a natural thing that probably everyone knows. It will save you a lot of money on electricity.
9. Clean the filter
Clean the air conditioner regularly and periodically to achieve good performance. Experts recommend cleaning the filter every 2 weeks or at least once a month.
10. Buy the right size air conditioner
It is important to buy the right sized air conditioner. An air conditioner that is too small for the room results in poor performance. When making a purchase, consult an expert to see which one is right for your room.
