Air conditioners have become a common device in households during hot summer days. However, not everyone knows how to use the air conditioner properly. Here are some common mistakes when using an air conditioner that people should avoid to protect their health and save on household expenses, including electricity and operating costs.
1. Turning off the air conditioner when the room is cool enough
Many people turn off the air conditioner as soon as the room is cool enough and turn it on again when it gets hot to save electricity. However, few know that this causes a counter effect. Air conditioners consume a lot of energy when starting up. Therefore, instead of setting the temperature to 16 degrees Celsius to quickly cool the room and turning it off after a few minutes, it’s better to keep it stable at 25 degrees Celsius for a long period of time, and only turn it off when the need is completely satisfied.
2. Using the remote control to turn off the air conditioner
Usually, we use the remote control to turn off the air conditioner. However, turning it off this way still keeps the air conditioner in standby mode, which consumes an amount of energy equivalent to a 15W light bulb.
In addition, if the power supply in your house is unstable, temporarily turning off the air conditioner with the remote control may not be a safe solution as it can pose risks of electrical short circuits or fires. Therefore, this is only a temporary way to turn off the air conditioner when you leave the house for a short period of time. So, how should you correctly turn it off?
According to electronic engineers, the correct way to turn it off is to use the remote control to turn off the air conditioner first, then turn off the circuit breaker to completely stop the operation of the air conditioner. This will help you save maximum energy, ensure safety, and extend the lifespan of your household’s device.
Above are common mistakes when turning off the air conditioner that many people make. Read and refer to them to confidently use the air conditioner for yourself and your family!
