High temperatures and life without air conditioning is almost unimaginable. However, as soon as you grab the remote control, another question arises, how much will the electricity bill be.

Do you really save electricity by turning off the air conditioner when you are not at home, or is it better to leave the air conditioner running at the same temperature all day?

Experts say that a space cooling system works best when it is running at full speed, not when it is running in shorter intervals at a slower speed.

More precisely, it is better to let the air conditioner work at full power for a short time, and when it cools down the room, turn it off, than to let it work all day at the same temperature.

In this, full intensity operation, the air conditioner will not only save you money, but will also drive moisture out of the room.

Also, when we talk about savings and air conditioning, we cannot bypass the thermostat. If you set the thermostat on the air conditioner to a higher temperature, let's say that the difference between the temperature in the room and the outside is no more than seven degrees, you will save a lot.

According to some data, air conditioners use three to five percent less energy with each degree higher on the thermostat.

For maximum energy savings, experts recommend leaving the air conditioner running at 26 degrees, writes N1 Zagreb.
