Maintaining the Optimum Home Temperature

Maintaining the Optimum Home Temperature

With the extreme Summers in Dubai, the AC has turned out to be yet another basic amenity for most homes (and offices) nowadays. Proper servicing and maintenance of the AC are thus, equally important too, if you want your cooling system to keep functioning properly and efficiently through the years- and preferably, keep it working longer.

Often your quality of sleep, too, might be affected, and specially so if the temperature falls below 65 degrees Fahrenheit or goes above 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The optimal temperature required for a sound sleep typically ranges between 68-72 degrees. To maintain this temperature consistently, and ensure that your AC keeps running smoothly, you must keep touch with a leading company for AC servicing in Dubai. However, here are a few tips to maintain the optimal home temperature without having to call in servicing companies too early:

Try your hands at automation.

Try using automation features, for instance, maintaining your AC from a far-away location, e.g., your office or a holiday destination, by setting intelligent controllers for temperature and humidity, which are meant to provide unparalleled flexibility for keeping your optimal room temperature under control. Such functions are provided by smart AC controllers. Or, if you want, you can use your smartphone, too, to control your AC from a distance. You may set your preferred temperature, operating profile and schedule for a specific duration, as well, using these smart features of automation.

Drive out excess humidity with dehumidifiers.

Humidity in your environment obviously leads to an uncomfortable environment, and you simply can’t stop adjusting the temperature of your AC. This happens when humidity levels reach as high as 65-80% (and beyond), combined with a higher than the optimal room temperature. Dehumidifiers can get you back on track, as they are useful in keeping humidity levels inside your home at a comfortable range of around 30-45%.

Divide-and-zone your home by appropriately utilizing the zoning system.

With appropriate zoning system, you gain the ability to maintain similar temperatures across rooms. Try setting up a specific temperature for each zone of your home. For example, you can keep your first floor at a slightly lower temperature, compared to the ground floor at your home. By doing so, you ensure that your AC does not require to operate continuously in order to equalize temperatures between two “zones”, thus, ensuring your AC a longer life.

Use shades or UV filters or colored screens for your windows.

Windows are a direct entrance of sunlight (and heat) into your home. To prevent your home from becoming much warmer through the days, use window shades, or apply UV filters and colored screens on your windows.

Re-check for efficient placement of appliances.

Place your home appliances that give out heat, for example, refrigerator and PC, in a room where maintaining an optimal temperature is not of much importance. Even though this release of heat is not constant, it adds to the heat sources already present in the room, leading to a sudden change in room temperature.

You spend maximum hours of the day at your home itself. The temperature inside your home is prone to affecting your mood, health, and sleep too. Thus, keeping your room maintained at an optimum temperature is essential. This is where proper maintenance of your AC comes to play.

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.

Healthier Living Home Environment

Simple Tips for a Healthier Living Home Environment

Your home should be a comfortable living space where you (and your family) can look up to when you retreat after a long, tiring day. More importantly, it is that place where you spend most of your time throughout the day. Keeping the environment at your place safe and healthy is a huge part of making your home a comfortable place to thrive in.

Here are 5 relevant tips that will come handy when creating a healthier home environment:

Cut out on toxic cleaners that contain chemicals.

Try purchasing gentle cleaners for your home, instead of the ones that are harsh and contain chemicals or other harmful ingredients. Or, you can also try making a non-toxic cleaner yourself at home by mixing lemon juice, vinegar and water together, for cleaning glass and other hard surfaces. Also, baking soda may work really well for the tough areas, e.g., toilets and sinks, and can also be a quick carpet refresher when sprinkled lightly before using the vacuum cleaner on them.

Try to keep the temperature inside your home fluctuating.

Although it is a common assumption that keeping the home temperature constant all the time accounts to a healthy home environment, it’s actually NOT true. In fact, indoors that are maintained at constant temperatures over long time, tend to disrupt the homeostasis of your body- because, your own internal body temperature is fluctuating almost all the time, mostly on account of the changing external environment.

Well, go ahead and indulge into a “thermostat war” with your room partner(s)! Or, if you stay alone, keep switching to higher and/or lower temperatures every now and then. However, if such temperature swings start happening by itself, don’t hesitate to reach out to our emergency AC repair in Dubai.

Prevent molds.

Try keeping all areas of your home free from excess moisture, as the thriving of molds can cause serious threats and health problems in you and/or your family. Prevent mold build-ups specially in the basement and cellar.

Go for proper home ventilation system.

Did you know, indoor air can be upto 10 times more polluted than outer air? It’s important to let in a little fresh air to breathe in everyday, keeping your AC turned off for some time, mostly by allowing cross- ventilation to occur. Also, an enclosed environment triggers air pollutants to build up and accumulate inside your home. Thus, proper ventilation keeps circulating air to move out such pollutants and keep moving in safe and fresh air for you to breathe healthy.

Keep your AC and other home appliances well-maintained.

Investigation and regular servicing by pros ensure that all your home appliances keep functioning efficiently. Any alert or red flag that comes to your notice must be treated or repaired immediately, by calling in for emergency AC repair in Dubai.

In case you’ve been noticing unusual noise, odour, hot air, and/or frequent cooling cycles, our professionally trained and knowledgeable technicians will ensure that you receive the most affordable solution to it- be it a simple tune-up, a complete clean-up, or a full replacement.
