Air Conditioner Tips - How To Reduce Air Conditioner Bills

Mar 24, 2008
Are you experiencing high air conditioner bills that are burning a deep hole in your household budget? Do you know that with a well-maintained air conditioning unit, you will be able to save 15% to 40% of the energy which will directly affect your bills?

To reduce your air conditioner bills, the best way is to have a well-maintained air conditioner unit. Although tasks like cleaning can be easily done by you, for more complicated technical tasks, it is best to leave the hard work to an air conditioner professional to have you fulfil it.

An air conditioning unit is more complex than what you think it might be. Any adjustments or repairs should always be done by professionals. In a unit, there are refrigerant gases, compressors, fans, fins, coils, electrical starters, thermostats, and so many more. It is just to overwhelming for you to do the task by yourself.

When you find that the bills are shooting really high for the past few months, it is time to ask for a servicing so as to make your unit more efficient and save energy. You can engage a professional service technician and he should be able to clean the evaporator and condenser coils, check refrigerant pressures, and adjust and lubricate moving parts. Sometime, there will not be enough refrigerant gas. In this case, the technician will also help you to top up the unit. A professional technician will be able to detect symptoms that can lead to energy wastage or inefficiencies, and rectify them.

One major culprit for tremendous energy wastage is that your unit does not have a damper or have a malfunctioning one. A damper is place in the duct of an air conditioner unit so as to prevent cool air from entering the furnace cabinet in summer, and warm air from escaping to the air conditioner unit in winter. If the technician finds that you have a damaged damper, he will help you to repair or replace it.

You might ask how often do you need to call a professional technician to check on your air conditioner unit. Actually, it really depends on how your unit cooling system operates. Different model of air conditioners unit will have different cooling operations. However, as a rule of thumb, the followings are a general interval guideline that you can take for reference:

1. Hot regions. If your unit operates for 8 or more months per year, you need to engage a professional once a year.

2. Warm regions. If your unit operates for 5 to 8 months per year, you need to engage a professional every 2 to 3 years.

3. Cold regions. If operating for less than 5 months every year, engage a professional every 3 to 5 years.

With a well-maintained and energy saving air conditioning unit, you will get to see a slide in your air conditioner bill.
