Energy Saving Tips

A few things you can do to save energy:

  • Select air-conditioner of proper heat removal capacity (consult experts before purchase) Use properly calculated heating and cooling or cooling alone air-conditioner. Oversized appliance reduces operating efficiency.
  • For good results install air-conditioner at the center of the room & at a height not more than 2 mtrs. from floor level (consult experts before installation).
  • Shade the room air-conditioner from direct sunlight. When possible, plant trees and bushes to keep the day's hottest sun away from your house.
  • Close drapes/curtains to keep sun rays away.
  • Room to be air-conditioned should be properly insulated & sealed (around doors & windows etc.).
  • Avoid frequent door opening & over crowding in the room.
  • User can save upto 3-5% more energy for each degree air conditioner is set above 22°C. Hence set the thermostat of room air conditioner at 25-26°C to provide the most comfort at the least cost.
  • Clean air filter regularly (Avoid dusting the room with air-conditioner ON). A dirty air filter reduces airflow and consumes more electrical energy.
  • Get the air-conditioner serviced regularly from an authorized person.
  • Use ceiling fan, intermittently, to spread cooling evenly as also when its not too hot. Using ceiling or room fans allows you to set the thermostat higher because the air movement will cool the room.
  • If air conditioner is older and needs repair, it's likely to be very inefficient.
