Seasonal Tips and Tricks
5 easy ways to prepare your air conditioners for Autumn
Air conditioners are a lot like us. They don’t like the changing seasons without the proper preparation; they need a regular check-up to stay in tip-top condition, don’t like to be crowded and always do better if they are clean. If treated correctly, your air conditioning unit will last much longer and run much more efficiently.
Clear debris from around your outdoor unit
Outdoor units can be vulnerable to piles of leaves and debris. If the area around your air conditioner is full of leaves, the airflow that your unit relies upon will be blocked, leading to a drop in efficiency and increased risk of a breakdown. If your unit is within easy reach, clear the leaves and debris at least once a week, if not contact your installer or another professional to assist you.
Be smart about your windows
Compliment the efforts of your heating unit and take advantage of the season. Open your blinds and curtains on warmer days to let the sunshine in and naturally warm the room. Providing your family do not suffer from autumn allergies, you could even open the windows on opposite sides of your home to bring a fresh cross breeze in on warm autumn afternoons.
Know your habits and preferences
All your little habits that go unnoticed most of the time can make a big difference to the optimal programming and efficiency of your system. Prefer things to be on the cooler side during the day but cuddle up under your favourite blanket at night time? Reflect your preferences in the programming of your system and make sure that the temperature is automatically lowered right before you get ready for bed.
Don’t hide your indoor unit behind a curtain; they are made to be beautiful, so show them off. Placing indoor units behind a cover will give the system false information as the temperature sensors cannot detect the true room temperature. This directly impacts the energy and time needed to warm up or cool down a room, making it harder for you to create the perfect room climate.
