10 Tips to Save Power from Air Conditioners

  1. Optimal Temperature Settings: Set your thermostat to an efficient temperature. The recommended range for cooling is typically between  (23°C to 27°C) for tropical country like Sri Lanka. Each degree below this range can increase energy consumption by about 3-5%.

  2. Use Energy-Saving Modes: Most modern air conditioners come equipped with energy-saving modes. These modes adjust the compressor speed and fan settings to maintain a comfortable temperature while consuming less energy. Activate these modes during periods of lower cooling demand.

  3. Regular Maintenance: Keep your air conditioner in top condition by regularly cleaning or replacing filters. Dirty filters reduce airflow, making the system work harder and use more energy. Schedule professional maintenance to clean coils, check refrigerant levels, and ensure optimal performance.

  4. Utilize Programmable Thermostats: Programmable thermostats allow you to set temperature schedules based on your daily routine. For example, you can program the thermostat to increase the temperature when you’re away or sleeping and lower it before you return or wake up.

  5. Proper Insulation: Ensure your home is adequately insulated. Proper insulation helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature, reducing the workload on your air conditioner. Check and upgrade insulation in attics, walls, and crawl spaces.

  6. Seal Leaks and Gaps: Seal any gaps or leaks in windows, doors, and ductwork to prevent cooled air from escaping and warm air from entering. Weather-stripping and caulking can be effective in minimizing air leaks.

  7. Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Appliances: When purchasing a new air conditioner, look for the Energy Star label or other energy efficiency certifications. These units are designed to meet strict energy efficiency guidelines, leading to lower electricity consumption.

  8. Use Fans Wisely: Ceiling fans help distribute cool air more efficiently, allowing you to set the thermostat a few degrees higher without sacrificing comfort.

  9. Install Window Shades or Blinds: Block out direct sunlight during the hottest parts of the day using window shades or blinds. This reduces the heat entering your home, lessening the load on your air conditioner and helping maintain a cooler environment.

  10. Consider ‘Bravo KillerWATT QRO’: The ‘Bravo KillerWATT QRO’ product utilizes patented technology to significantly reduce electricity consumption for air conditioners. It acts as a smart energy-saving device that optimizes the AC’s performance, resulting in substantial cost savings. Consult with the manufacturer or a professional for proper installation and integration.

Implementing these tips collectively can contribute to substantial energy savings and lower electricity bills while maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. Tailor these strategies to your specific circumstances and the features of your air conditioning system.
