Keeping cool in 2013
We are air conditioning installers on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. We are not just keeping you cool, we are helping you save your money with some energy saving tips. Read on to learn a few simple to follow money saving steps.
Did you know that cooling, heating and ventilation typically account for 40 -50% of the energy costs for commercial buildings and businesses? That’s a lot right? Here are some tips to help bring those costs down this summer. Queensland is a hot place and we all need to use our air conditioning so here are some ways to use it more efficiently.
Stay in the range
Australian energy companies typically recommend that you keep room temperature at 24-25 degrees Celsius in summer, and 18 -20 degrees Celsius in winter.
If you have ceiling fans, use them.
Using ceiling fans can reduce the need for air conditioning and can actually make a temperature of 3-5 degrees higher very comfortable. This is because the ceiling fans are moving the cool air around.
Remember to flip the switch.
It seems a little obvious, but do remember to switch your system off when the building is empty. Especially on weekends and overnight. Make it someone’s responsibility to flip the switch!
Keep things shut.
Make sure the windows are closed, and that doors to unused areas are kept shut. There is little point cooling a room for no one!
