Want to turn on the A/C on a hot day? Here are 7 tips for optimal use

Tips for use

Besides cleaning and maintaining it, it’s also important to be aware of the best way to use your A/C. These tips will help you make good use of your air conditioning unit:

  1. When you’re using your A/C you should always close the windows and doors. That way, no heat can come in.
  2. Protect the room you want to cool from direct exposure to the sun, by closing the curtains, for example.
  3. Don’t place any objects on top of the A/C since these will only retain heat.
  4. Postpone vacuuming your home until a cooler day. The amount of hot air that comes out of your vacuum cleaner will linger in your home otherwise.
  5. Turn on the A/C before the heat hits. This way, the machine has to work less hard, which saves energy.
  6. Set the thermostat of your air conditioner to a temperature that differs from the outside temperature with a maximum of 7 degrees Celsius. It will feel much cooler than the actual temperature because the A/C will dehumidify the air, which causes it to feel cooler.
  7. Don’t place the A/C in a very large room. Every A/C can cool a certain maximum amount of square metres. When you put it in a room that’s too big, it won’t be able to properly cool the entire room.
