Does turning the air conditioning lower cool the house faster?

Every summer we ask ourselves the same question: how to control the temperature of our air conditioning correctly.

When it comes to tackling the problem of heat, setting air conditioning as low as possible is a classic approach, but it's also one of the biggest mistakes we make when turning on our air conditioning.

It is a mistake to set it at 18º straight away to try and lower an ambient temperature of 35º. We're not driving a car that goes from 0 - 100 km/h in 7 seconds. 

Air conditioning needs time to reduce the temperature and it won't work any faster if we set it to 18ºC.

In fact, not only does it fail to cool the house faster, but you will feel a distinct chill in your pocket, as it increases energy consumption by a considerable amount.

So? What can we do?

The trick to controlling air conditioning is simple. Keep the following tips in mind:

 

1. Take your time when choosing a suitable air conditioner

Here we look at the 5 questions to ask yourself when purchasing an air conditioning unit and all the advantages of choosing carefully. For example, it's very important that you consider the power supply required and the type of system you want.

 

2. Take care to install it properly and keep it well maintained

Not only do you need a good device, but it's also vital you understand how to take care of it. Bear in mind that keeping your air conditioning unit clean and well-maintained leads to more efficiency in the long run. Also, if you're aware of the most common reasons air conditioning units break down and ways to avoid them, your equipment will last much longer.

 

3. Control the refrigerant gas

You should check the refrigerant gas regularly to make sure it's not leaking and the level is not too low. And you should check everything is working properly. This will allow you to optimise power consumption and prolong the lifespan of your air conditioning unit.

 

4. Save on air conditioning, thanks to other habits

Keeping windows and blinds drawn during the hottest times of the day, ventilating first thing in the morning and at night, and having good insulation will help you economise and also survive the summer while saving on air conditioning.

 

5. Enjoy the perfect temperature

If you don't know what the ideal temperature is for your home or premises, we recommend reading our blog. It will help you understand and control the temperature and thus improve your comfort and health.

 

6. Beware of temperature differences

Avoid setting the air conditioning to a difference greater than 10ºC compared with the outside temperature. Thus, you won't be so affected by sudden temperature changes, and you'll avoid colds and sore throats.

By following these simple tips, you will be able to better control your air conditioning and, ultimately, save on energy consumption too.
