Many people consider air conditioning to be wasteful and a huge source of carbon emissions. While these are all true, it is possible to make air conditioning more energy efficient in the following ways.
Install the right size of air conditioning system
Before you buy an air conditioner, you should ask a professional to survey your property and find out the size of the air conditioner you will need. If you undersize the system, then the air conditioner has to work harder and use more energy. This will shorten the operational life of the system. If you oversize it, then it can lead to more energy use and less operation. So, your air conditioning system can be energy efficient if you fit the right size of the system in your property.
The Controls on your air conditioning system
There are many options to control the air conditioning system. You can control it using simple thermostat for controlling the entire property or a de-centralized control to control each place seperately. You should consider your purpose of the space to select the right way of operating the air conditioning system. For example, you cannot let your staff freely control the air conditioning system as there will be wastage of energy.
The pipes of the air conditioner must have quality lagging. Otherwise, you will be cooling the outside instead of the inside of the building. This will be very inefficient and lead to waste of energy. The building needs to be insulated as well. It will prevent the building from warming up too quickly during the day and stop the cold air from escaping as well. It is important to insulate the walls, roofs, etc. This way you will be able to reduce your air conditioning bill.
You need to maintain your air conditioning system well. You should make sure that you service it regularly. You should clean the fans and heat exchangers to increase the efficiency of the system and extend its lifespan.
You must educate people in the building regarding the proper use of the system. Things like not leaving the windows and doors open, recommended temperatures, etc. must be taught.
By using air conditioning properly you can use it more efficiently and reduce your energy bills. So, keep the things discussed in mind and use the air conditioning the right way.
