Pros and cons of air conditioning at home

July 26, 2018

In real estate Espígul we are interested in you to enjoy the most of your home. Therefore, we want to offer you some tips on how to use them, such as those related to how to use the air conditioning devices in an optimal way.

The air conditioning is essential in summer

Although the air conditioners also allow you to heat the house in winter, summer is the time when it is most needed. Keep in mind that there is nothing like a mild temperature to rest and even work, if you do it in your own home, at ease.

However, you should know that it is not necessary to lower the temperature of the device too many degrees. Leaving it, for example, between 21ºC and 24ºC will be enough to enjoy a pleasant indoor climate. In this way, in addition, you will achieve savings in energy.

More tips to save, such as those related to energy efficiency

Apart from the previous recommendation, be clear that the air conditioning does not need to be on for hours. It is worthwhile to cool your house with the outside air of the hottest hours of the day. When the sun tightens, close the windows. If you do this, you will only need to turn on the air conditioner for a few times at lunch and dinner times.

Besides, you can contribute to saving energy and reduce your ecological footprint by betting on sustainable air conditioners, such as those that use R-32 refrigerant gas. The devices will work better if you clean the filters, which is where the bacteria can accumulate. You will avoid the annoying summer constipation. And be careful with your exposure to the jet of air, since you can catch torticollis, ocular keratitis and headaches.

We hope you found these tips useful.
