False. In fact, last summer, record electricity consumption figures were recorded as a result of the heatwave.
Air conditioning accounts for one third of a household’s electricity consumption and it is worth knowing that for each degree that you set your home, this consumption increases by 8%. The Ministry of Industry recommends not lowering your air conditioning temperature below 26º. To save money on your electricity bill this summer, the IDEA (the Spanish Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving) recommends closing doors and windows when using your air conditioning system to ensure that you do not waste the cooling energy. This will help you drop your energy consumption by 35%. And get that ladder out occasionally. A clean filter consumes less energy.
