With summer almost upon us, many people are
looking to their ducted air con on The Gold coast
to give them some relief from the expected
heat. 9 ways we can all use to improve our air
conditioners performance
3
  • Clean the filters and duct vents
  • If your filters are clogged up, then you could be
    losing 7 to 010 percent of their efficiency
    meaning they are costing you a lot more to run
    especially in hot climates.

4
  • Closed Vents
  • Many people close some of their vents in ducted
    systems thinking this will save energy, but this
    actually uses more energy as the cool air
    dissipates in the hotter areas keeping the
    thermostat working longer.

5
  • Check the Ductwork
  • If your ductwork is leaking or the insulation is
    missing you could be losing 20 to 40 of the
    energy sending your energy cost skyrocketing.
    Sealing the ducting with the proper insulating
    material is often not expensive.

6
  • Leaky windows and gaps around doors
  • Having the home properly insulated and all cracks
    and gaps eliminated is one of the best ways to
    reduce your energy costs. Old leaky windows and
    not having proper insulation in the walls and
    ceilings mean all that air you have cooled down
    is just going to leak away.

7
  • Close the Blinds
  • Allowing the hot sun to enter your rooms can heat
    them by 10 to 20 degrees, the less heat you allow
    inside the less you have to cool the home down.
    Consider using shade cloths over areas that get
    direct sunlight so you can still have the views
    without the suns heat. Always close the drapes
    or curtains at night this is a very effective way
    to keep in the cold air, as the heat can escape
    through the glass to the outside quickly.

8
  • Have your Air Conditioner Serviced
  • To get the best of an air conditioner it should
    be serviced every 12 to 18 months, whether you
    have a wall mounted model or a ducted air con on
    The Gold Coast.

9
  • Try to Lessen Indoor Heat Sources
  • Many home appliances such as ovens, grills,
    dishwashers, dryers, washing machines,
    refrigerators and lighting all produce a lot of
    heat contributing to the interior temperature of
    your home. Try and keep these devices well away
    from the different thermostats around the home or
    avoid using them when the air con is turned on.

10
  • Use Ceiling Fans
  • Ceiling fans can help circulate the air and cool
    you down so can raise the thermostat setting and
    reduce cooling costs while still getting the
    right performance from your air conditioner.

11
  • Is your Air Con Old and Out of Date?
  • If more than 10 years old it may be time to
    invest in a new more efficient model that could
    save you 40 to 50 percent of your energy bill so
    it would pay for its self quickly.

Improving your air conditioners performance is
critical if you want to keep your costs down. The
best way to do this is to ensure the unit is
clean, the filters are regularly washed and the
insulation on all ducting is intact. Your home
also needs to be properly insulated.
