We won’t settle philosophical debates here, but we will say that an air conditioner can, in fact, be TOO big. An air conditioner with a capacity that is too large for your space will turn on and off in quick timeframes. This can wear out the air conditioner’s compressor, reduce its life expectancy, and waste a lot of electricity.
This one is a lot more intuitive. An air conditioning unit that is too small for your space will be asked to work overtime, and it will likely fail to thoroughly cool the area. If you need help choosing the right air conditioner, then leave the replacement or installation to Rooter Hero Plumbing. We are happy to help.
If you want it to get hotter, you fan the flames, and if you want it colder faster, you turn down the thermostat, right? Well, not exactly. Your air conditioner is likely designed to work at one speed, regardless of how ridiculously low you set the thermostat. Set it to a few degrees below the outdoor temperature to enjoy energy savings.
Are you shutting off your air conditioner every time you head out to work in the morning? Turning it on when you get back from outside could be using more energy than keeping the unit running. Just adjust the thermostat to the outside temperature instead. The air conditioner’s power-up stage uses a lot of energy!
The sentiment is correct! You should regularly change your air filters, but these filters get a lot dirtier than you might think. We recommend property owners replace their filters once per season – that’s four times a year, not only once! In fact, we advise it more frequently if you have pets and people with allergies or respiratory issues in the building. Dirty air filters can clog up the system and overwork the air conditioner.
While standing in front of a fan will make you feel a few degrees cooler, the fan does not actually cool the room. Fans do NOT cool rooms. Fans cool people by wicking off the heat and sweat from the body. This is why running fans in unoccupied rooms is a waste of energy! Only use fans if you are taking advantage of its breeze.
