How to Make Sure Your AC System is Environmentally Responsible

Sep 14, 2018

When you think of making your home environmentally friendly, chances are you think of things such as turning off the lights, using reusable bags when shopping or starting a compost pile for your garden. Another way of making your home more environmentally friendly is to make your air conditioning system energy-efficient. Practising good habits will help conserve energy at home. Here are things to do to ensure your air conditioner is environmentally friendly.

Get Regular Service

Keeping your air conditioning system in top form is essential as it ensures that it will run properly all year round. An annual checkup by an Intagas service technician ensures that your unit will throughout the hot and humid Brisbane summer without needing unexpected repairs. Regular maintenance also ensures that it is functioning properly. By doing so, you will minimise energy usage and conserve the environment.

Use a Programmable Thermostat

This is the most affordable and easiest way of making your air conditioner greener. Program it in such a way that a specific temperature is maintenance when you are away from home. You can schedule it to automatically turn on or off at specific times, which not only saves a lot of money in the long run but conserves the environment at the same time.

Use Fans

Fans can be used in conjunction with your AC system. Using them alone is not a good way to control summer heat, however when used together with your air conditioner, they become an excellent tool to help you save energy and keep rooms cool while using less energy.

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

One of the biggest culprits in an under-performing air conditioning unit is an old and dirty air filter. A good rule is to regularly clean or change the air filter depending on how frequently you use your air conditioning system. As a general rule, make sure that you clean or change your filters at least once each month. If you do not see light through your filter, it’s time to change it. Dirty filters block airflow and make your system work harder.

Time to Say Goodbye

If you have an old system that is more than 10 years old and has a low star rating, it may be time to say goodbye. By upgrading to a new unit, you will benefit from its environmentally friendly features by saving money on your power bills.
