Better Cooling Days Ahead: 5 Easy Tips to Run Your AC Efficiently

The season of summer is at its scorching best in India, a time when air conditioners come to our rescue. However, proper maintenance of this device is essential to enjoy the bliss of effective cooling. Whether you already have a window AC or a wall unit, or you are planning to buy one, its effective maintenance will ensure that you keep a cool head and a full wallet over summer. Various factors affect the efficiency of an AC. Here’s how you can avoid it.

The size of your AC
For better efficiency and lower operating costs, the size of your air conditioner should match the size of the room for effective cooling. If the unit is too large for the space, it will have short cooling cycles, leading to increased energy usage. If the AC is too small, it will have to work harder to keep the room cool. So, it is best to check the area of your room and divide it by 600 to get the basic capacity. For instance, if your room is 100 sq. feet, then the basic AC capacity required will be 0.67 (100/600). Now add 0.5 ton for every five people in the room. Normally, you need an AC of 0.8 tonnage for a room measuring 100 sq. feet.

Higher ratings, lower electricity bills
The higher the star ratings of an air conditioner, the lesser power it consumes. However, this doesn’t mean you should always opt for a 5-star AC. The decision is largely based on your usage pattern. If your existing AC has a 3-star rating and is used just for a few hours a day, you need not worry about spiked energy bills. Invest in a 5-star AC if your AC usage extends beyond eight hours on an average. For lower power consumption, go for Whirlpool air conditioners that come with Intellisense Inverter Technology which adapts to your cooling needs while reducing electricity consumption.

Regular cleaning goes a long way
Filters and coils of air conditioners require regular maintenance for units to function efficiently. Make it a habit to clean these parts regularly. Additionally, the coil on the outer side of an AC will require your attention since it is exposed to dirt and dust. Its regular wet cleaning will enable smooth functioning of the AC. During winter, don’t forget to cover the outdoor unit.

Temperature control
The smaller the difference between the inside and outside temperature is, the lower your electricity cost will be. During summer, it is best to keep your air conditioner running between 24-26°C. With Whirlpool 3D Cool air conditioners, you don’t have to worry about changing the settings for a higher or lower temperature. It comes with the 6th Sense Intellicomfort Technology that senses the room’s temperature for better cooling results.

Enable a closed environment
Don’t make your air conditioner work harder than it needs to as it puts a lot of pressure on the compressor. Make sure that windows are properly closed. Don’t keep the door open for long. Special attention should be given if you have installed a window AC. If you find a gap between the window and the AC cabinet, get it fixed right away to prevent hot air, insects, or dust from creeping inside.
