Bigger isn’t always better for an air conditioner. Buying bigger won’t necessarily make you feel more comfortable during the hot summer months. In fact, A unit that is too big will consume too much power, leading to wastage and higher energy bills, while a unit that is too small will break down frequently since it will be forced to work harder to cool the room.
Central air-conditioning systems need to be sized by professionals.
Here are a few COOLING TIPS to remember
- Set thermostat at as high a temperature as comfortably possible, and ensure humidity control if needed. The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.
- Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and, therefore, unnecessary expense.
- Avoid placing appliances that give off heat such as lamps or TVs near a thermostat.
