What should I set my temperature to on my Air-conditioner
Generally the best temperature to set your air conditioning to is around 24°C in summer and 19°C in winter.
You can save considerably on the amount of energy consumed for each 1°C of cooling or heating that you do without. For example when it's 35° outside, setting your air conditioner to around 24, rather than say, 20, can save a significant amount of energy without your system running constantly. Balance between comfort and efficiency of the system.
Shade your windows in summer with curtains, awnings, or shutters to reduce heat absorption by up to 80%. Heavy linen curtains with pelmets will also help trap heat in winter. This all helps in reducing the overall running costs of your air conditioning.
Where to locate your Air Conditioning outdoor unit
To ensure optimum performance, the outdoor section of split systems should have adequate ventilation around the out door unit with A clear distance in front of the outdoor unit also, if possible, be placed in a shady area.
Direct sunshine and restriction of air access will reduce the air conditioner's performance.
Adequate clearance from obstructions is essential to ensure that exhaust air is not re-circulated back through the outdoor coil.
