7 Ways to save energy this extreme hot weather include:
- Set temperatures on the air conditioner between 24 and 25 degrees. Setting an air conditioner just one degree warmer than you normally would can cut cooling costs by 10 per cent
- Only cool the areas people are in by using zoned cooling or alternating between separate units
- Add window coverings such as drapes or roller blinds that fit snugly around windows. This can reduce seasonal heat exchange by almost half. Blinds with light-coloured backings on window-facing sides deflect sun heat
- Add exterior shades or awnings. This can decrease the temperature in a room by up to 3 degrees
- Use fans to cool down. Fans are cheap to run, evaporating moisture from the skin and creating a cooling effect
- When buying a new air conditioner, consider the size of the room. A unit too small for the space will need to run constantly but one too big will run in short cycles, causing extra wear and tear
- Ensure air conditioners are in good shape by regularly cleaning or replacing the filter, keeping outdoor equipment for the system free of dirt, leaves and other debris, and covering the external part of the system when not in use during cooler months
