Slow Down the Run­ning Costs

Consumer Voice - - Inverter Air Conditione­rs -

Heat­ing and cool­ing ap­pli­ances ac­count for about 40 per cent of the en­ergy us­age. To save money when run­ning your air con­di­tioner, there are sev­eral things you can do.

• Size: Hav­ing the cor­rect AC size is an im­por­tant first step.

• Star rat­ings: A model with more stars will be more ef­fi­cient and use less power than a model with fewer stars.

• Make your home as en­ergy-ef­fi­cient as pos­si­ble.

• Use econ­omy mode (‘Eco mode’) if your air con­di­tioner has one.

• Set the ther­mo­stat (target tem­per­a­ture) to a rea­son­able tem­per­a­ture so the sys­tem doesn’t have to work too hard and use more power than re­ally nec­es­sary.
