Did you know that only in summer we can get to consume 60 to 70% of our electricity bill nothing more in air conditioning?
This is one of the problems we face in that season; However, there are some tips that you can use to improve the performance of this device and that, in addition, will help you reduce the cost of the electricity bill and contribute to the environment.
How to improve our consumption and performance of air conditioning?
1. Check the temperature
Very few people know this, but the ideal air conditioning temperature should be between 75.2 to 78.8 ° F (24 to 25 ° C); the less the temperature level, the more energy consumption will be. Remember that the ideal thing is for the air conditioner to keep the home or office cool.
In addition, the colder your health and that of your family is in danger since the low temperatures of the air conditioning can cause flu.
Therefore, the ideal temperature should always be 5 ° below the difference to the outside temperature.
2. The orientation of the baffle deflectors
So that the air does not flow in one direction, it is ideal to place the deflectors of the grilles so that they can diffuse the air in a better way and cool the whole room and not only a part of it.
3. Be careful when turning it on
We believe that turning it on at the minimum temperature will help it cool down quickly, but this will only cause an unnecessary waste of energy and force the team. Always turn it on at the ideal temperature and allow time for it to cool.
The cleaning is ideal
Air conditioning filters must be cleaned at least twice a year, or according to use, since these, if they are not clean, can cause a decrease in the performance of the equipment and increase the energy consumption up to 10%.
Also, always ask them to check the ventilation ducts to avoid obstructions. The general maintenance of the air conditioning should be done at least twice a year.

4. Keep windows and doors closed
When we do not close the exits or entrances to our house or office, this causes the cold air to escape causing the air conditioning to make an effort to keep the room cold.
Therefore, it is important that you keep the windows and doors closed while you have the air on
Use only air conditioning when necessary!
Summer can be very hot, but for the air conditioner not to overheat, use it only when necessary. Open the windows in the morning and at night; and just hold it in the afternoon. Also, remember to turn it off when you leave the house or the room.
5. Take care of the engine
When we install the air we usually place the engine on the roof or outside where the sun’s rays hit it directly; this can cause it to overheat and not cool as it should; In addition, this can cause the air to be damaged much more quickly.
If the engine is outside, choose to build an awning that protects it from the sun’s rays.
