A series of mistakes that everyone makes when using air conditioners both increases electricity bills 3 times and endangers lives
Choose the wrong mode
On the air conditioner control panel, the mode that is usually selected is Auto (Auto), some controls have specific modes such as cooling (Cool), drying (Dry), fan mode (Fan).. Using the wrong mode is one of the reasons why the air conditioner does not do the right thing, causing an increase in electricity bills.
You should choose the Cool mode when you need to cool quickly and keep the room temperature stable as the level selected in the first place. In Fan mode, the chiller will turn off and the fan will still run. This mode should be used when air circulation in the room is required but no cooling is required.
Dry mode will be turned on to reduce the humidity in the room. The mode is suitable for rainy days when the humidity outside is high. The time to use this mode is about 1 – 2 hours. If used for a long time, it is easy to affect the skin such as dry hands, body skin, dry cornea, dry nasal mucosa.
Sit in front of the air conditioner right after taking a shower
In fact, there have been many deaths due to taking a shower right away. Such an environmental change causes a sudden temperature difference that will cause body temperature to drop suddenly, sweat cannot be released, causing serious damage to the central nervous system. If you continue to stay under a fan or air conditioner, it will adversely affect blood circulation in the body, leading to slow blood flow to the brain, not only affecting heart rate and blood pressure.
To avoid this, after bathing, you should dry your body, do not sit in the air conditioner and shine directly on your body. It is best not to enter an air-conditioned room right after taking a shower. If the room is already on, the air conditioner should be turned off so that the body gradually adapts to the room temperature before turning on the air conditioner again.
Let the air conditioner blow directly on you
When being blown directly into the body by a stream of air with too low temperature for a long time, the blood and blood circulation will not circulate, causing pain and even paralysis of the muscles. Therefore, when turning on the air conditioner, you need to adjust the wind direction appropriately, it is best to let the cold flow blow upwards, avoiding blowing directly on the body, especially the head and extremities.
Close the door of the room
When turning on the air conditioner, we always have to close all the doors to avoid loss of cold air and waste of electricity. However, this habit is very harmful to health because the air flow is not circulated, is “twisted” and for a long time creates a feeling of mystery. The actual air conditioner does not take cold air from the outside, but only circulates the air in the room through the indoor unit to cool it, so users need to open the door or use a small ventilation fan to get more fresh air into the room. Therefore, the best way is to create a very small opening for air to circulate, so choose a new generation air conditioner to have more air filtration and sterilization functions, helping the room to breathe as if it were breathing.
Place a basin of water in an air-conditioned room
Many families have the habit of placing water pots in air-conditioned rooms to create humidity. However, this method is said by doctors to be dangerous to health because the steam will attract dirt and disease-causing germs.
Many homes also buy additional nebulizers to create humidity, but this is not necessary, especially for families with young children. Children breathe a lot of steam, stay in a humid environment, it will not be good for the respiratory system, easily cause pneumonia, cough…
Turn on the air conditioner all day
In fact, turning on the air conditioner continuously all day will be harmful to your health because the air is not circulated as well as the humidity in the room is greatly reduced. Therefore, turn off the air conditioner and use the fan during times of the day that are not too hot. This both helps to make the room more airy and saves significant energy.
The hotter it gets, the more you turn on the air conditioner at a low temperature
Turning on the air conditioner too low not only consumes electricity, but also easily causes users to experience thermal shock due to the difference with the outside temperature when going in and out, causing many health consequences. Even on hot sunny days, the temperature should not be lower than 5 degrees Celsius compared to outside. In addition, on cooler days than 35 degrees Celsius, you should only turn on at lower than 5 degrees Celsius outside to protect health and avoid heat shock.
Sleeping in an air-conditioned room after being drunk or beer
When we first enter the room, we often have the habit of turning on the air conditioner at a low temperature. Meanwhile, alcohol and beer often make people sleep soundly. This can easily lead to a cold.
Once the body is infected with cold for a long time, but the person lying in the air conditioner is not aware of defense, it will lead to a critical condition such as shock and paralysis.
Do not clean and maintain the machine regularly
Regular cleaning, especially the air filter of the air conditioner, will both help increase the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner, this is also a way to save maximum electricity during use. In addition, any damage or malfunction during the operation of the air conditioner should be immediately rectified, so that the air conditioner can operate more efficiently and save electricity.
Turn off the machine as soon as the room is cool enough
Many people have the habit of “saving” electricity by turning off the air conditioner as soon as the room temperature is cool enough, then turning on the air conditioner again when it feels the temperature in the air begins to heat up. This way of turning on / off causes the air conditioner to start a lot, which consumes electricity.
Air conditioner includes outdoor unit and indoor unit. The outdoor unit consumes more electricity, accounting for 95% of the total capacity of the air conditioner. The warm-up time is also the time when the entire air conditioning system works to reduce the room temperature.
When the required cold temperature is reached, the outdoor unit will stop, only the blower and the swing motor will continue to operate. Newer air conditioners are all equipped with this automatic shutdown feature, so you do not need to actively turn on / off the air conditioner, which consumes 3 times more power than the energy needed to maintain the cold.
