This is not a good year for many (economically speaking) and that added to the warm months, those of being home longer, those of the air conditioning gives what worries us many the rise in electricity bill.
It is clear that in many areas of our country we cannot pass without the air conditioners but without reaching such drastic solutions, the truth is that with small things we can make the bill a bit smaller, and although miracles cannot be done, I am sure that this small drop will be appreciated by more than one pocket.
First of all, if you have not yet bought the air conditioner that you are going to use during this summer and you plan to do so in the coming weeks, pay special attention to your expense and power.
Try that the device or devices you buy meets the needs of your home, without excesses, because it will be a power of more that will not serve you and you will have to pay. Also depending on the model you can find air conditioners with one or another energy expenditure, it is probably convenient for you to make a disbursement somewhat larger at the beginning (more efficient) and then save it on energy in the bill over time.
Try before buying to have important knowledge such as the place where you want to put the device or the size of the room where it will perform its function, in this way you can choose the most suitable device and therefore the one that will be more economical.
If you already have it, you must tune it up, not only to prevent possible breakdowns that you may not realize until you turn it on, but also because like other electrical appliances it needs proper maintenance and cleaning, and not carrying them out not only means a malfunction, but also a greater expense .
When putting it into operation keep in mind that some devices have a button for economize energy expenditure, if you can afford to keep it going, better than better for your pocket.
You should also think that what it is about is to be satisfaced, don't freeze. You have to use them with moderation, as with everything. If we choose a temperature of 19º the expense will be much higher than if we choose 22º, and at the moment of truth it may not be a significant difference in our well-being, so it refines a lot when choose temperature.
Importance has also and much, as always, the common sense, but we will talk about this in the next post in which I will tell you the rest of the advice, since as I see, once again I have become much longer ...
