At AJ’s Air, the best AC service in Orlando, Florida, we advise you on everything that you need to know about air conditioners. This time, we decided to make a list of the most frequently asked questions about air conditioning.
AC equipment should be placed in areas where there is not too much sun and where there is good air circulation. This must be fulfilled with both the outdoor and indoor units.
What should be done to avoid unnecessary consumption is to turn off the air conditioning when there is no one in the place. Many climate control equipment already includes energy saving mechanisms.
The normal and recommended temperature to take care of the environment usually oscillate between 71 to 75 °F. If the humidity increases, the temperature should be reduced so as not to modify the thermal sensation.
It must be considered that a temperature that differs by more than 53°F from the outside should not be programmed since this will increase the energy consumption by 8% for each degree that exceeds those degrees of difference.
It is essential that, since the air conditioning is turned on, it is programmed for the desired temperature. Neither higher nor lower. Nor should a temperature be set higher or lower than what we want to cool or heat faster. This can be achieved with the ‘powerful’ mode that almost all devices have. Otherwise, only higher consumption will be achieved.
The ventilation of the place where the refrigeration equipment is used should be set in the hours of lower heat. These hours, usually, are the first hours of the morning and at night.
For air conditioning to be carried out correctly, the house must be ventilated during these stages of the day and avoid opening doors and windows while the air conditioning is working. Furthermore, ventilation only takes ten minutes.
Normally, they should be cleaned once a year, so we will avoid breathing dirt-laden air and our equipment will last much longer. However, the filters must be cleaned at least once a month. The extraction of filters is a simple process that can be done without the help of professionals. In the case of a more thorough cleaning, it is advisable to have professional services.
Usually yes. Nowadays, almost all air conditioning systems bring a function that allows regulating the humidity of the place where it is located. This dehumidification function reduces humidity with a minimum decrease in temperature.
These questions were only a few of them. In our next blog, we will cover many more interesting questions about air conditioners.
