Did you know that using your air conditioner in winter will keep you warm and save you money? Yes, reverse cycle air conditioning is one of the most economical (and safe) ways to heat your home. They might cost more to purchase, but you will save money in the long run. Keep reading to discover how reverse cycle air conditioning works and our top tips for getting the most out of your unit.
When you want to cool your home, your air conditioner draws in warm air and runs it over a refrigerant to lower the temperature inside. When you put the unit in heating mode, it absorbs heat from the air outside and transfers it inside to warm your home. There is a bit of a technical process, but reverse cycle air conditioners will work effectively even in the coldest conditions.
With rising electricity costs, most of us are acutely aware of every appliance we use and what it could be adding to our power bill. Like other electrical items, the harder your air conditioner has to work, the more energy it will use.
Therefore, making small adjustments to the settings on your air conditioner can make a big difference when your electricity bill arrives. The optimum temperature for air conditioning on the South Coast is 26 degrees in summer and 20 degrees in winter. These might sound higher or lower than your normal settings but why not give them a go and see what you think?! You might just notice the difference on your energy bill!
