Air Conditioning is still an essential
For many residents of the Coast, air conditioning is still an essential – despite our reputation for glorious weather conditions. Our summers do get very warm and most of us reach for the remote to cool down during the long hot days (and nights) of summer. And although our winters are mild by Southern standards, most Coasties are acclimatised to our Queensland conditions, and once winter really hits we are reaching for the remote to warm up our homes.
How to get the best out of your air conditioning
It’s a good idea to have your air conditioner checked from time to time to ensure it is functioning correctly. Ikon Electrical can do this for you. If you notice your electricity bill is creeping up just give us a call. We recommend an annual check.
We also recommend you install curtains or blinds at windows to help get the maximum benefit from your air conditioning system. Bare windows mean your air conditioner has to work harder to cool or heat your home.
If your air conditioner is an older model it may be worth investigating the newer more energy-efficient models that are now on the market. A system with a good energy rating will save you money over the long term.
Also, don’t be tempted to set the thermostat to an extremely cold or extremely warm temperature. This will make your air conditioning unit work much harder and use extra electricity. If you are unsure, ask us about recommended settings to maintain a comfortable ambience in your home.
Reverse cycle air conditioning is an economical and energy efficient way to cool our houses in summer and warm them in winter. At Ikon Electrical we take into account the design of your home, the amount of space you need temperature-controlled and also your budget, to come up with the right air conditioning solution for you.
