Air Conditioning Mistakes You Should Avoid

Posted on March 4, 2019 in Thermocool Product Tips with 3 Comments

To enjoy long term use of your air conditioner, you should avoid certain mistakes when it is being installed and as you proceed to use the appliance.

Buying the wrong AC size

Buying an air conditioner that is too small or too large for the space you want it to cool can become problematic. Buying an AC that’s too small means that it won’t efficiently cool your home.

The air conditioner will have to work harder to ensure the room is cool, and this tends to increase your energy bills, and possibly shorten the lifespan of the appliance. On the other hand, an AC that is too big for the intended space will cool the small space too quickly, and then cycle off and then on again. This affects the AC’s compressor and could also increase your energy bills. Wondering how to select the right AC to suit your space? Find out here.

Not servicing your air conditioner

It usually looks like your AC doesn’t need any maintenance – after all, you just have to switch it on and the room gets cool, right? It’s important to ensure your appliance is regularly serviced so it performs optimally and enjoys a longer lifespan. You can maintain your air conditioner by cleaning the filters about once in 2 months – cleaning your AC filters can improve energy usage for your AC by about 5% – 15%. It’s also a good idea to call in an expert for a more thorough maintenance every year. You can call our customer care on 07008437662665 (0700THERMOCOOL) for more details.


Wrongly positioning the AC

Ensure that your air conditioner (window unit) is installed by a professional. They will know to ensure that the back of the AC is positioned an inch lower than the front. Without attending to this, your AC unit might experience water leakage.

It is also important to ensure that your window unit is not placed in a place that frequently encounters direct sunlight. The AC should be installed in a place that allows for ventilation of hot air. However, with the split air conditioners, you do not have to worry as much about positioning.

Leaving the AC on all day

Some people prefer to leave their air conditioner running all day so their home feels cool and welcoming when they return home from work. There’s no need to keep paying those sky rocketing bills, however. The GenPAL Inverter Air Conditioner’s energy efficiency and super-fast cooling capacity is what you need.
