How to save on airconditioning

One of the ways to save on airconditioning at home is to plant trees around the house that can improve the cooling capacity of your units. Trees shield your home from the hot rays of the sun.

Install shutters on your windows that will keep the heat out and the cold in improving the efficiency of your airconditioners.

It is also recommended to put up solar or mesh screens especially on windows facing east and west that get a lot of sunshine.

Go easy on the thermostat. Turn off units when you are not at home and be sure to close windows to keep the room fresh. That way, you do not have to start from scratch when you get back home and switch on the airconditioning.

Use fans to circulate air in the room and when it is not that hot, switch it on instead of the airconditioner.

Try to minimise using ovens and stove tops. When it is that hot, go for meals that are light and will not weigh you down. If you really have to cook, do it in the evening when temperatures have gone down.

Maintain your airconditioners regularly. For the unit to work efficiently, you must clean the filtre at designated time frames such as every 3 months.

You can also replace your unit with a newer model which is more energy efficent. This move will also help lower your electricity costs.

Of course, you can keep yourself cool by taking several showers a day or jumping in the tub or swimming pool.
