How to Clean Up Household Energy Use

In this blog post, we will look at appliances or areas around the home which should be checked and cleaned regularly, so energy and money is not wasted.

Clean Fridge coils on a regular basis

The coils under and at the back of the fridge are common areas for attracting dust. The dust on the coils act as padding that inhibits the fan from removing heat effectively. It would be wise to clean the fridge coils twice annually to improve its efficiency. Also ensure air can flow around and behind your fridge and position away from direct sunlight and away from your oven if possible as these will decrease the fridge energy capacity.

Clean Air Conditioning filters

The filter on your air conditioner performs a vital role in stopping particles, germs and other materials whilst cooling your home.

You can choose to organise for an expert to clean your filter or you can organise yourself.

To remove the filters is generally an easy procedure and would be summarised in the instruction manual that came with your unit. Wire filters can be wiped with a duster or rag and then cleaned carefully in soapy water. It is essential to hold until the filters become dry before placing them back into your air conditioner.

Inspect Ducts for Leakages

Keeping ducts free of dirt will assist heating units and air conditioning flow correctly to all areas of the home. Organising an annual check with a specialist will provide an opportunity to review for leaks.

Ensure clear space around the Air Conditioner

Make sure area surrounding your air conditioner outside is clear of obstructions. This will allow for units to run more efficiently and also position in a shaded area away from direct sunlight as this will force the air conditioner to work harder.

Should you be unsure how to clean properly or equipment requires servicing, seek the advice of a professional technician.
