If you want to live green, you must pay attention to details. There are many of them, so you cannot know all of them. But, some details are very important. For example, using your air conditioning is just something you do. You don’t pay attention to it. Air conditioners use a lot of energy, so if you want to live green, you must start using them properly. There are several mistakes that you make every day. So, let’s see them.
1. Every air conditioner has an air filter. It is used for eliminating dust and other particles from the air. However, many people believe that there is no need to replace it. Actually, you should replace it every few months. Even better is to replace it on every 2 months. The cost of an air filter is low, so you can afford it.
2. Some of you believe that if they buy a bigger air conditioner, they will cool down house much faster. You are right. But, if you do this, your big air conditioner will cool down the house and turn off. It will do this all the time, so it will last shorter. Also, big air conditioners use a lot of electricity, so if you want to live green, this is the last thing you should do.
3. If you use thermostat incorrectly, you will use more electricity. Many people believe that using thermostat is simple. Actually, it is, but you should know a thing or two first. If you want to cool down your house to 77 degrees, don’t set the thermostat on 70 degrees, in order to cool it faster. Set it on 77 degrees and wait.
