Energy Efficiency of Your AC

Factors Affecting the Energy Efficiency of Your AC

Buying an energy- efficient AC can be a vital factor when it comes to running it throughout the days and nights, especially if you’re residing in the extreme weather conditions of Dubai. A 5-star AC limits the energy consumed daily, and the lower the number of stars, the lower is the energy efficiency of an AC. Ideally, 1 ton of cooling demands 1,000 watts of electricity; 2 tons 2,000 watts; 3 tons 3,000 watts; and so on. If you notice your electric bills rising higher than usual, call us for an inspection and emergency AC repair in Dubai.

However, here are a few factors that will help you keep your AC’s power consumption in check:

1. The number of people present inside the room:

As we all are aware of, the human body produces a lot of heat throughout the day to day activities. Hence, a room with more than 10 people, for example meeting rooms, party halls, or banquet halls, require bigger size AC or more than one AC to get sufficient cooling inside the room, while a room with fewer people in it will get the same cooling from a single AC. Thus, more people inside the space means more power consumption required by an AC to cool the room, resulting in higher electricity bills.

2. The difference in temperature outdoor and indoor:

If the outdoor temperature is above 40 degrees Celsius, for instance, then it consumes more power to cool a room, rather than a 32 degrees Celsius outdoor temperature. Likewise, it takes more power to cool any room below 18 degrees than to cool it at 24 degrees Celsius at the same time.

3. The actual room size:

An air conditioner removes all the heat present inside your room- hence, the larger the room, the larger the air inside the room, and the more electricity is required to cool all the indoor air. The total electricity consumed in removing heat in a 100 sq. ft room is less than taking out heat from a room that is more than 100 sq. ft room.

4. Other electrical appliances and objects present in the room:

Electrical appliances in your room generates heat which increases your room’s overall indoor temperature, making your AC make additional efforts to cool the same volume of air- thus, it consumes more power for achieving the optimum temperature.

We often keep the door of our room open, which raises the volume of air inside the room that needs to be cooled by the AC. Then, the AC has to cool the extra volumes of hot air entering into our room, which puts unnecessary pressure on the unit, resulting in additional power consumption in order to achieve optimum cooling.

Every hard surface in your room, too, gets cold when your AC is running. This also adds to some cooling your AC has to do, to cool your entire room evenly.
