Do you want to know what the most effective ways to reduce your AC bill this hot season are? We’ve put together for you the best tips and tricks from our many years of experience in the air conditioning industry. So if you want to stay on top of your energy bills, this blog post is for you. On your marks, get set, save!
We all like summer in the sunshine state! But what we dislike is how much our comfort costs us at the end of the day. In fact, according to last year’s AC statistics in our country, Aussies use their air con 4.3 hours per day on average. This means that they spend a whopping $4.6 billion on keeping cool, whether they’re home or not.
So what can you do to improve these numbers and reduce your AC bill overall?
Nowadays, one of the most common concerns amongst Australian homeowners is wasted energy. Statistically, we spend around one hour per day cooling the house when nobody is at home. This may seem little but if we multiply it with the 2.3 million households that leave their AC on, it’s a clear sign we all need to make a change in our behaviour.
Remember that time is money! Therefore, don’t forget to turn off your air conditioner! Whether you use timers or programmable thermostats, be an example for yourself and for the ones around you.

Changing the filters should also be part of your cleaning routine. Ideally, you should clean them every month in peak summer and winter season because of their intense usage. For the rest of the year, though, cleaning them at the beginning of each season can be enough.
Remember that small changes can have a big impact on air conditioning consumption overall!
