One of the most useful inventions on Earth is the air conditioner. Whether you’re trying to cool down your home or trying to get some air circulating in your office, this decent sized gadget gets the job done. Although may think you know everything about the standard A/C unit, here are some things that you nobody tells you about:
Number 1: Change the Filter
This may seem like a no-brainer, but in reality, it’s the most essential piece of advice you can take. When you neglect the filer in your A/C unit, you’re keeping harmful bacteria and debris within your unit, making it easier to spread throughout the air. The next time your unit alerts you to change the filter, never ignore it — do it as soon as possible. If you’re not sure how to properly clean your A/C filter, we have some helpful tips for you here: http://bit.ly/2xs0rt4
Number 2: Use Energy-Saving Mode
Although your space may feel hotter than ever, it’s important to limit the usage of you’re A/C unit. If you continue to have your unit on 24/7, it will not only wear it down, but it will also raise your electrical bill astronomically. If you want to maintain a comfortable environment, then use a time or energy-saving mode on your unit. This will not only keep a cool temperature in your space but will also save you money.
Number 3: Keep the Doors Shut
Usually, when a homeowner keeps their A/C unit on, they tend to leave all the doors open to joining rooms. When you leave doors open, the unit will have to work twice as hard to produce cold air in your home. Additionally, leaving the doors open will not keep the home at a consistent, comfortable temperature. To get the most out of your A/C unit, and save some money, keep all the doors in your home shut when using your unit in a single room. This will cut back the usage on your unit, but will also maintain a cool temperature in your environment.
