Save Money on Running Your Air Conditioner
A large part of the electricity produced in Australia is used by air conditioners. Depending on the make and model of your unit, you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $1,000 just to cool off in the summer. In fact, over 62 percent of Aussies say that air conditioning is the biggest expenses on their utility bills.
If your AC system is draining your budget, it’s time to do something about it. Sometimes, proper cleaning is all it takes to improve the efficiency of your AC unit and save energy.
Reduce Your Cooling Costs This Summer
Over time, air conditioners become less efficient and accumulate dirt. This can happen in as little as one year. The more you use your AC, the faster it gets dirty and the shorter its lifespan will be. That’s why regular cleaning and maintenance are a must.
A poorly maintained air conditioner will work harder to keep up with the demands and circulate air. As a result, it will consume more energy. On top of that, it can become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, fungi, and other contaminants. Air conditioning itself doesn’t cause allergies or flu-like symptoms. It’s the dirty air that makes you sick.
From cleaning your AC unit regularly to switching to a programmable thermostat, there are a couple of things you can do to lower your energy bills. Plus, you’ll enjoy a higher quality indoor air and keep germs at bay.
For the start, book a Crome AC technician to check your air conditioner and recommend the best course of action. Depending on your needs, they may clean or replace the air filters, check the duct system for air leaks, or inspect the refrigerant charge.
