Knowing how to regulate your air conditioner is important in order to keep yourself comfortable and optimise energy consumption. To do this, here are a few things you should consider:
1. Understand your air conditioner
To regulate your air conditioner as effectively as possible, you need to understand how it works. This is because when you set your air conditioner to a desired temperature, the system will start to reach that temperature. The air conditioner will automatically switch off when the temperature is reached and then restart when the temperature rises.
2. Opt for reversible air conditioning
This solution is ideal if you are looking for a system for the summer that will also serve you during the winter.
Reversible air conditioning can create energy savings of up to 30%. Thanks to the refrigerant, the air conditioning system can carry out a heat exchange between the inside of your home and the outside.
It then has a special valve that allows you to reverse the cycle to create heat or inject coolness into your home.
3. Close doors and windows
If you want to optimise the use of your air conditioner. It is important to adapt your environment to keep yourself comfortable and reduce energy costs.
Remember to close your external doors and windows to keep the coolness inside. If you want to cool one room in particular first, remember to close it off.
4. Do not set the air conditioner too high
Just like when you turn on the heating in the winter, you don’t have to set your air conditioning very high to reach the desired temperature.
This will not speed up the process, but it will increase the household energy bill.
It is recommended to maintain a difference of 7 to 9 degrees between the outdoor and indoor temperatures.
5. Avoid air conditioning while sleeping
There are dedicated ‘sleep modes’ to lower the gap by up to 5 degrees and decrease ventilation to reduce the noise level.
6. Maintain your product to increase its longevity
Taking regular care of your device will increase its lifespan.
It will also prevent possible breakdowns and your energy bill from going up.
