Beating the heat, the optimal way this summer

Air conditioners are an item of utmost importance during the warmer seasons and with our recent heatwaves here in S.A it's crucial to run them at optimal conditions.

Secrets to Using Air Conditioning Properly

  • Choosing the appropriate air conditioning equipment is a must. If you haven't made a decision yet, contact Gree Direct to find out which option is best for your home. If you have a smaller unit than you need for your room, you'll waste more energy and get less performance.

  • Choose a room temperature that isn't too cold. As a result, your body will benefit from the cooling environment while inside while also avoiding the temperature disparity that exists outside. As a general guideline set your air conditioner 12 degrees below the temperature of the outside air.

  • You are not saving money by stopping and starting your air conditioner while you are at home. Open your air conditioner first thing in the morning and leave it running all day. If your air conditioner uses DC Inverter technology, it will consume extremely little power while operating and maintain a steady temperature in your home.

  • During the night, turn off your air conditioner. Turn on the Sleep Mode before going to bed. In the sleep mode, air conditioners raise the ideal internal temperature and then turn it off after a period of time. You can stay cool while sleeping without spending money or getting sick if you do it this way.

  • Close the doors and windows throughout the day, particularly during the middle of the day. Make sure the house is ventilated early in the morning or late at night when the outside temperature is at its lowest.

  • During the summer heat and when the air conditioners are on, avoid using ovens or projectors. Cooking in the afternoon, ventilating the home, and then turning on the air conditioner is preferable.

  • You can close your blinds and shutters to keep your air conditioning equipment out of direct sunlight.

  • During the day, turn off the air conditioners in rooms where you are not living. Make an effort to save money by utilizing underused areas.
