During the evening and night time, the temperature tends to be lower than day time. Hence, during night time, you should set your temperature higher than you would normally set at day time. This will allow you to save on your energy bills while cooling down your room efficiently. In addition, have you heard about conscious coolness? When we are sleeping in the night, the amount of conscious coolness required by our body is lesser. This happens as our body and mind enters into deep sleep and since out body are resting, the temperature will be lower.
Take a chance and try setting your aircon at higher temperature during night time. Furthermore, some air-conditioner has features such as “sleep mode” and you should utilize it. The rationale behind this feature is the similar and it could help you save some money in the long-run as well. One tip that may be helpful to you is that the sleep mode setting in the air-conditioning system is designed to reduce the energy consumption of the air-conditioner when you are sleeping.

Make use of Light Emitting Diode (LED) light

Furthermore, it does not generate a significant amount of heat as well. These advantages of the use of LED lights will reduce the burden of your air-conditioning to cool down your room and reduce your electricity bills, together with the electricity savings from using LED lights.
When you are selecting the type of blinds or curtain for your room, make sure to take into consideration the type of material you are choosing as well. Different materials will result in different sun protection effectiveness. The sun protection from the curtains will affect the transmission of the heat into the room. The better the protection, the less heat will be entering into the room and this will help your air-conditioning to cool down the room at a faster pace. Also, once the room is cooled, the surrounding temperature will not increase easily compared to a thinner curtains or worst, no curtains at all. Depending on the size of your windows, make sure the curtains are large enough to cover all window panels to prevent any possible heat from entering into the indoor surroundings. If you thinks that despite switching on your unit for several hours, the room is still not cold, be sure to engage a reliable company in Singapore to inspect on it.
