Energy efficiency has never been more important so here’s some pointers on how to get more energy efficiency from your air con units:
- Control/Set Point
The most energy-efficient air con system can be rendered inefficient if not controlled in the correct manner. By setting operation times and set-point temperatures functions you’ll enhance efficiency. Use economy modes if available.
Poorly insulated pipework breaks the vapour seal allowing condensation to form on the pipes. This condensation can soak into the insulation destroying thermal insulation properties and resulting in a decrease in the systems efficiency. Make sure all pipe work is insulated to the correct quality and standard.
- Service & Maintenance
Don’t neglect system services and general maintenance. Energy consumption can increase by as much as 60% as a result of poorly maintained or dirty units.
