Using air conditioning in the winter

When people think of air conditioning, they typically only consider the release of cold air. While older, traditional air conditioning units aren’t always suitable for wintertime, modern systems can be used throughout the year due to having such a wide selection of options and features. This means that homeowners and businesses can benefit from clean, fresh air all year round with the perfect room temperature.

How does air conditioning work during the winter months

Using your air conditioning system in the winter can offer several benefits. You can set it to a temperature that you find comfortable whilst also bringing in a constant stream of fresh, filtered air to help clear discomfort. This can be particularly helpful in places such as apartments that suffer from overheating due to heat rising from other floors or direct sun exposure.

Is it energy-efficient to leave air conditioning running during the winter?

Although it’s more energy usage, it’s more efficient to ensure your house, office or business space is maintaining a constant, comfortable temperature throughout the year. This can mean utilising your air conditioning and your heating at different points throughout the day. One of the most efficient ways to do this is by using a thermostat. Maintaining a regular temperature by using a thermostat means you don’t have to constantly heat up or cool down your property and save energy in the long run.

Similarly, you want to avoid leaving your air conditioning on full blast throughout winter due to higher energy bills. Setting your heating to the same comfortable temperature and using modern automations will ensure it is not on when it isn’t needed or when the place is empty.

Servicing an air conditioning unit in winter

As well as figuring out your preferred winter temperature, it’s also a good idea to book your air conditioning for its annual service during the winter months by professionals and engineers. Winter makes for the perfect time to do this as your unit would of been used heavily throughout the summer months and could have gathered dust, dirt or even damage. This also ensures that when the time comes for it to be used, anything that needs to be replaced will have been and the unit can work as efficiently as possible.
