10 Energy-Efficient Ways to Cool your Bedroom in Summer
Summertime has its perks, backyard barbecues, days at the beach, long sunny days and summer fruits! You may, however, not be such a fan of all the temperature highs that interrupt our peaceful sleep.
So, what can we do to ensure a cool sound sleep in Summer without paying too much? It all starts with your air conditioner.
Make the most of your AC in a small space:
1. Prepare your home
First, isolate the area you would like to cool. Close all doors and windows, and seal all gaps to insulate the space.
2. Choose the right air conditioning unit
Opt for an energy-efficient split system designed for smaller environments. Our inverter technology can reach your desired temperature in summer and help you sleep soundly. This also prevents the entire house being cooled when it is not necessary.
3. Smaller units for smaller rooms
Pick the right capacity for your space. There are many different capacities and options out there so best to do your research. Powerful air conditioners come in a range of sizes these days, so you can create your perfect thermal environment by picking an effective AC that will save you money.
4. Maintenance is key
At the start of each season, ensure that your air conditioner is in top shape by cleaning and servicing your unit as necessary.
5. Slow and steady
Use the slow and steady approach of turning on your AC earlier in the day, at a moderate temperature, and then adjusting the temperature only if the heat outside increase dramatically. This allows the AC to not work as hard at lowering the temperature inside your home and thus will help keep electricity costs down.
6. Peace and quiet
Getting into slumber mode is easy. Carrier’s noise-sensitive technology enables the compressor motors to create a perfect indoor environment with a quiet operation.
But that’s not all. A few other tips to cool down in the Aussie heat are:
7. Avoid harsh daylight exposure
During the day, prevent direct sunlight from overheating the area with external shades and indoor blinds or curtains.
8. Select energy-efficient lighting
Unlike incandescent lights, LED and CFL light bulbs will not turn your home into an oven. They are also pocket and environmentally friendly. Win-win-win!
9. Up in the clouds
Bedsheets made of natural fibres, such as cotton or linen, are soft and breathable. Not only will they help you keep your body temperature low overnight, but also increase airflow in your bedroom throughout the day.
On average, the human body loses 200mL of water during sleep, so make sure you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day.
By following these easy steps, keeping cool on summer nights will be a breeze. And, if you are looking for an energy saving, cost-effective cooling and heating solution, visit our website.
