Your Ac’s Power Efficiency

Factors Affecting Your Ac’s Power Efficiency

When you buy a new AC, you may have noticed the star ratings on it- well, the more the star rating it has, the lower amount of electricity it consumes. Buying an energy- efficient AC can be a vital factor when it comes to the need to have it running throughout the days and nights, and specially so if you’re residing in the extreme weather conditions of Dubai. In such case, 5-star AC is required to limit the energy consumed per day. However, if an AC is required to run for a few hours in a day only, then 3-star could be an option. For those who are unaware,

  • 1 ton of cooling requires 1,000 watts of electricity;
  • 2 tons require 2,000 watts;
  • 3 tons require 4,000 watts; and so on.

However, here are a few factors that determine the power and energy consumption of your AC:

1. The number of people present inside the space.

If the room usually consists of more than 10 people, a larger size AC or more than 1 AC is required for sufficient cooling- for example, at offices, halls, and party or commercial spaces. This, automatically, leads to more power consumption (and hence, higher electric bills) needs for your AC. With fewer people in the room, lower body heat will be released; hence, single AC is enough, thus consuming much lower energy.

2. The size of space to be cooled, depending on temperature outside.

A larger room will contain heat in its air spread over larger area, that needs to be driven out by the AC which has to work for longer time duration, compared to a room that is smaller in size. Also, if the temperature at the time is much higher where the smaller room is located, an AC may take longer time to drive out the heat, compared to a larger room located at a place having lower temperature, depending on the temperature that needs to be achieved.

3. The presence of other electrical appliances within the space where your AC is installed.

Electrical appliances in the room, too, generate heat, to cool which an AC is required to make additional efforts. The lesser the number of appliances, lower is the power consumed by your AC to achieve the desired optimum temperature.

4. Other items confined to this space.

All hard surfaces in the room, too, get cold while your AC is running. This also puts some additional pressure on your AC’s overall power consumption. Further, if doors are kept open, the air keeps circulating across rooms, thereby making your AC put in some unnecessary cooling efforts, too.
