It’s official 2019 was Queensland’s sixth hottest year on record, it was 1.27°c warmer than the Queensland average temperature according to the Bureau of Meteorology. What’s more, it was our third hottest summer on record, and things don’t look to be changing anytime soon with around 69% of Queenslanders choosing to switch ON the air conditioner for the summer months. We’re here to teach you how to improve air conditioner efficiency as best you can, while still keeping cool for the remainder of our hot summer!

While we are all for staying cool & comfortable through these hot summers, the truth is most Brisbane & Gold Coast families may be overindulging just a little and in turn, increasing their energy costs!

Here are our top three tips for staying cool & comfortable while keeping the energy bills to a minimum.

1. Use your system effectively

When using your ducted system, it is crucial to ensure all external doors and windows have been closed; this ensures you are cooling just your home (not your patio!) and will in-turn improve the cost efficiency of your air conditioner.

    • Reduce heat in your home by using double glazed and thermally broken aluminium windows and doors. You can drastically help the effectiveness of your air conditioning system by lowering the heat allowed into your home.
    • Set your temperature at between 22-24 degrees! They say that in summer, every degree you raise the desired temperature on your air-conditioner thermostat you could reduce your running costs by up to 5-10%.
    • Shut off zones you aren’t using and close the door.
    • Use ceiling fans together with your air conditioner for increased comfort! Using ceiling fans to help spread the cold air from your air conditioner can help keep a more consistent temperature in your rooms. Ceiling fans may also allow you to set your air conditioner’s desired temperature higher, which will improve air conditioner efficiency and save you hard-earned cash.

 

2. Clean your filters

It is good practice to clean your filters every three months. Regular cleaning or vacuuming ensures your family isn’t breathing in dust that has accumulated on the return air filter. Find out How to Clean Your Ducted Air Conditioner Filter here.

3. Get Your Air Conditioner Serviced Annually

It is crucial to get your air conditioner serviced once every 12 months to prevent surprises and help prevent breakdowns before they occur!

Our trained staff will maintain your ducted air conditioner to the highest standards & provide you with a detailed report on the health of your ducted air conditioner system. They can also make suggestions on ways you can improve air conditioner efficiency and get more from your system.

During this annual Ducted Air Conditioning Service, we check the performance of your system, ensure there are no leaks, clean and flush the drains, tighten electrical connections, and ensure the correct operation of your zoning system.

Just by learning how to effectively use your air conditioner, whether it’s a Ducted Air Conditioning or Split System Air Conditioner, you’re sure to save money on your energy bills and improve air conditioner efficiency. Get in touch with us today if you require a repair, service or are after a MyAir | Smart Zone Controller.  With Smarter Air & Electrical, you’re in good hands.

10 star review to the team at SmarterAir & Electrical have the WOW factor. Brilliant from start to finish. Having a Property Manager background and high standards I know quality service and you were fantastic! The Neo Panasonic unit ducted system is so quiet it’s a dream unit. Don’t even know it is on! Sensors in each room and can remotely turn the system off via the MyPlace app. Specialists in what you do and don’t outsource the annual service shows your genuine accountability “Thank you so much” to all involved, Alex, Davis, Amanda & Chris. Today the installation & electrical team, professional and friendly, Tom, Jake, Eden, Levi, Nav and Will were simply brilliant a Very big Thank you for making my day! They even vacuumed my house and cleaned up & used drop sheets when installing they really looked after my property. I will be adding lights and the garage door to the future to the MyPlace app and also will be upgrading my residential smoke alarms with them. I am a client for life and will recommend you to everyone. Nothing is too much trouble. I chose well and grateful for all of the answers to my questions. It takes a lot to WoW me these days, but you did, thank you for all your hard work.

I had smart air & electrical for air conditioning service install a new unit and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From scheduling the appointment to the completion of the job, everything was seamless. The technician arrived promptly, was courteous, and thoroughly explained the work that needed to be done. They also provided helpful tips for maintaining the unit in the future and cleaned the house after finishing the job.The pricing was fair, and the service was top-notch. I highly recommend them for all your air conditioning needs!

Had my Panasonic ducted unit installed in December. They did not try and upsell me a unit that was too big for my house size ,Other companies recommended 1 -2 (16kw-18kw)sizes bigger. Recommended a 12.5kw which would be sufficient for my home size or could get away with the larger 14kw(summers only getting hotter). Ended up going with a Panasonic 14kw Delux unit with MyAir. On the day all the materials were delivered 30 mins (6.30am) before the guys turned up. Started at 7 am and left by 2 pm, They check with me the location of each room where the ducts were going as I have fans as well. House was vacuumed and marks on the wall cleaned. The electrician stayed back till about 3 ish to finish up, test each zone and run through the MyAir tablet. Easy to deal with, quick responses with emails and calls and happy to work with me as I built a stand so my unit was of the ground. Also went up in the ceiling to finish off some work and the ducting is all tidy. Highly recommend!
