Nowadays, everyone is trying hard to pull down the sky scraping electricity bills which cast a hole into our pockets. When calculated every American today is spending 40 percent of his earnings in paying the electricity bill for AC during the summer time.
What more if the AC fails to work and starts to leak, it again burns a hole and even your pocket starts to leak. And this we all know that the hard earned money when goes waste like that really hurts. Any leaks, holes in the windows, doors etc. causes the air to pass through, which means more energy loss.
Therefore the first and the foremost thing that must be done is to check out for any kind of leaks. As you must realize, that how big and effective an AC is, it won’t function properly unless you have all leaks in the windows, sealed. After going through the ventilation system of your entire house next in the line is the entire check up of the conditioning system.
Past ten years since the time they were first introduced, there has been a constant improvement and advancement in the condition of the AC. Improving your houses’ ventilation and its air conditioning is one of the major aspect of any home improvement plan.
There can be many reasons that might cause the ineffective cooling of the house and one of them is the usage of older and earlier versions of Air Conditioners. The execution of home improvement plan is incomplete without the proper ventilation and conditioning of the house.
The earlier versions that you might be using may have just 6-7 energy efficiency ratio. But, in comparison to the present day AC’s the ratio that is available in the market is 11-13. Thus, it is likely that the lower version of your Air conditioner might be consuming more energy while proving to be worth a little.
So, one must have some basic information before buying an AC and that means you must know its SEER ratio and also should check out its rating. Remember the higher and much is the rating the less power consumption takes place and the higher is an AC’s efficiency. Buy products that are in the market for at least 7-8years and have provided the best results.
Also, if an AC is marked a star then also you must consider it over any other one as the energy consumption in it will be far less than the other AC’s while the efficiency will be greater than many others. Thus, choose wisely, as these things cost money and prove heavy on your pocket, that too not only once but every month you are the one who pays the electricity bill.
