Dummy Tips For Air-Conditioning
Excessive cooling is a waste of electricity and bad for health.
When there is no air circulation, heat cannot be discharged, thus resulting in short circuiting.
Always use properly sized fuse to prevent fire outbreak
Clean the air filter of the indoor unit regularly
Check indoor fan for unusual noises.
Clean indoor/outdoor coil.
Engage contractor for preventive service
If you expect a hot day, it is better to turn on the air-conditioner early rather than wait until the room is hot. That way, it will be easier to cool the room
Adjust the vertical and horizontal vanes to ensure good coverage of airflow to the room and to distribute uniform temperature.
If the plug is loosely plugged or there is any damage to the electrical wire cord, danger of short circuiting is great.
Different room plans and orientations require differing cooling capacity even with the same room size.
For example, rooms facing east and west, require higher cooling than rooms facing north and south.
Higher cooling capacity is required when the indoor and outdoor units are located in places with excessive heat exposure.
The number of people as well as their activities in the room affect the heat load of the room.
For 1 hp, coolling capacity ranges between 8,500 Btu/hr and 10,000 Btu/hr in different brands. The higher the Btu/hr, the higher the cooling capacity.
For 1 hp, EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) ranges between 8 and 12 in various brands. The higher the EER, the higher the efficiency.
For 1 hp, airflow varies from 210 cfm to 300 cfm. Higher airflow provides faster cooling as well as better air circulation.
