Every year during the summer season, we observe a spike in the sales of air conditioners and air coolers, and for a good reason. The harsh Indian summers often demand better combative measures than an ordinary fan, leaving the customers searching for energy efficient ACs. The criteria for buying an air conditioner vary greatly; while some look for energy efficiency, others might go for a bigger size air conditioner.
However, with changing times, people are now prioritizing air conditioners that are eco-friendly. Considering we now have air conditioning units with energy-saving technologies, customers are now trying to understand the characteristics of eco-friendly air conditioners. Here are a few ways in which you can identify an eco-friendly, and energy efficient AC.
Air Conditioners with Two-Stage Compressors
During the process in which air conditioners bring down the air temperature, it is the compressor of a unit that utilizes the greatest amount of electricity.
A compressor is used to send out the heated air (vapour), and thus return the refrigerant to its cooled state. However, a two-stage compressor ensures that it compresses less on relatively cool days, and compresses more during the hotter days, thus consuming less energy.
Customizing According to Needs
Modeling and customizing each component of the air conditioner based on individual’s cooling and heating needs ensures greater energy efficiency.
Using Eco-Friendly Refrigerants
Using refrigerants such as R-32, R 290 and R 600A, whose Global Warming Potential (GWP) is comparatively less to those of other refrigerants, is one way to determine whether an air conditioner is energy efficient or not. Refrigerants with less GWP have negligible impact on the ozone layer, and reduce the amount of electricity consumed by the air conditioning unit.
Using Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats can be used to reduce the energy consumption in a household. A thermostat can be programmed to remain switched off when there is no one at home, and cool down the house by the time you return to your home.
One has to also ensure that they are not using air conditioning units that are too small for the room. Smaller air conditioning units aren’t energy efficient, and cannot maintain the balance between the air that is cooled in the condenser of the AC, and the hot air that is expended, and drawn out of the house by the evaporator.
Furthermore, the HVAC professionals should regularly inspect air conditioning units, at least once a year. One should also regularly check for leaks, and testing the refrigerant pressure, thereby ensuring the air conditioner’s optimum performance.
It is also imperative to replace old air conditioning units with the newer ones. This ensures that the air conditioner operates below the environmental and energy efficient standards that have been put in place.
