If an air conditioning unit does not perform effectively, you will not stay cool throughout the day and you will incur greater running costs. This is not ideal because air conditioning units are expensive to operate if the system is not performing as you expect. Often, the air conditioning unit has been manufactured correctly and it is the quality of the installation or the nature of the surrounding environment that compromises the effective performance of the air conditioning unit.
The air conditioning unit must be installed only after the property has been assessed so that the optimal location has been found. In addition, you might have to make a few modifications to your property so that the air conditioning unit operates effectively. Otherwise, the air conditioning system will continue to operate in a manner where it does not cool the property completely, cool air is lost to the exterior or a higher setting is required to keep the temperature low.
To avoid bill shock, a hot or warm internal environment, and an overworked air conditioning system, engage a qualified air conditioning installer who has the skills and experience to complete the right installation for your air conditioning unit. Once the system is installed, you will need to ensure that you support your air conditioning unit’s effective performance. Here are a few quick and easy tips for better air conditioning performance.
Block sunlight by adding window shades
Using internal blinds, shutters, shades and awnings, you can help keep your property cool during the warmer and summer months. Make sure you choose block-out material that reflects the heat and sunlight to help your air conditioning unit perform better.
Regular air conditioning checks ups help to keep the unit running effectively and to identify any issues in advance of the problem materialising. Servicing includes a clean, parts check, testing of components and other essential checks to keep your system running error free.
Replace an old air conditioning unit
Old air conditioning units will consume more power and operate less efficiently compared to newer models. Invest in new units to ensure that you are taking advantage of the latest technology which will help your system to operate at is optimum performance.
Clean filters regularly
A simple way to keep your air conditioning unit running smoothly is to regularly clean the filters in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Ensure you either clean the filters with a soft cloth and low powered vacuum to suck away dust, cobwebs and dirt for best performance.
Install a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat helps to control the internal temperature. Without one, the cooling system will continue to lower the temperature without a lower minimum to turn off and regulate the temperature. This can overwork the air conditioning system.
Check property is sealed
Your property should be fully sealed so that you are not losing cooled air to the external environment. If your property is not fully sealed, you will notice that you are lowering the temperature (and making the unit work harder) to compensate for lost air.
