5 Air Conditioner Tips to Beat the Summer Heat!

by Shailendra Kumar Tech Reviewer

There’s nothing quite like sitting in an air conditioned room during hot summer months. The cool breeze brings much respite from the unrelenting heat. While there are many tips and tricks to keep your air conditioner working in optimum condition, upgrade your AC this summer to enjoy fast and efficient cooling. While choosing your new AC, keep energy efficiency and tonnage in mind as well as the great deals you can access so that your purchase doesn’t cost you a fortune.

One such win-win offer is Bajaj Finserv’s Summer Sale where you can shop for an AC worth Rs.20,000 and get an Insta Credit of Rs.5,000 on your purchase. This amount you choose is transferred to your Bajaj Finserv Wallet and can be used to pay for your electricity bills on EMI.


Here, you can choose LG ACs, Lloyd ACs and Blue Star ACs as well as other best brands and pay via affordable No Cost EMIs. There are a million other products available on the EMI Network, from home appliances to smartphones. These products are available in more than 60,000 stores, both online and offline. The network also has a reach in more than 1,300 cities across India. You can choose to pay online using your EMI Network Card or you can walk into any of the partner stores and buy your AC using in-store financing.

Now that you know how easy it is to buy an AC, here are 5 tips you need to keep in mind to make sure your new purchase keeps you cool not just this summer, but for years to come.

Set the AC to the right temperature

You may often think that if you set the AC temperature to minimum, say 18°C, the room will cool faster, but this is a fallacy. In fact, your AC will spend a lot more energy trying to cool the air down to 18°C than it would 24°C. Setting your AC to a lower temperature also results in high energy bills. Instead, try setting the AC to 24°C. It will still be cooler than the outside temperature of 32-33°C and above, and your AC will stop using up energy once the desired temperature of 24°C is reached, thus saving you money in the long run.

Keep doors and windows closed

You may not take this tip seriously enough. We are all prone to leaving the door, if not the window, open when the AC is on. While you think it doesn’t make much of a difference, it actually does. First, you must understand how an AC cools the air. It sucks in the warm air from a room, which is passed over a refrigerant that traps the heat in the air. The heat that is trapped is then expelled from the back of the AC. The cool air is then blown back into the room. When you leave a door or window open, the heated air that is expelled comes right back into the room and defeats the purpose of the AC. Therefore the cooling effect gets severely compromised in the process, using more power as well.

Always keep the fan on

When we switch on the AC, we tend to keep the fan off thinking it will hinder the cooling process. But, this is also a myth that needs to be busted. The truth is ACs function better with the fan on. An AC, on its own, takes a bit of time to cool the air. A fan speeds up the process and helps circulate more cool air in the room. Not just that, with the fan, you can resist the temptation of setting your AC to a lower temperature. You can set it at a higher temperature and feel just as cool. This will also save you money.

Clean the AC filter regularly

Even if you are obsessive about keeping your house clean, there are certain types of dust particles, often unseen, that get sucked into the AC. All AC models that have filters trap these particles so that they don’t hinder the functioning of the AC. But over time, these particles accumulate and reduce airflow, and can push up your electricity bills while also creating a maintenance nightmare for you. So to avoid all that, make sure you clean out your AC filter regularly. If you use the AC daily, then you must clean the filter at least once a month. If not, then once in three months will suffice.

Keep all heat sources covered

If you want your AC to work optimally, it is important to do everything you can to reduce the heat in the room. This would include covering all windows in the room with curtains. Additionally, do not keep heat-inducing appliances such as a washing machine in the room that has an AC. If the air conditioner is in the kitchen, avoid keeping the stove on for too long. These little things will go a long way in ensuring your AC runs efficiently and for a long time without resulting in soaring power bills.

These helpful tips will keep your air conditioner in top shape and give you excellent value for money too. You are likely to save even more if you choose to buy a new AC through the EMI Network. You can also choose from other best brands like LG AC, Lloyd AC, and Blue Star AC and pay via affordable No Cost EMIs. Just check your pre-approved offer from Bajaj Finserv. Once you know the EMI financing amount you are eligible for, you can get customized EMI deals that make repayment a hassle-free process. If you are looking to consider other financial services such as home loans and personal loans, you can check your pre-approved offers from Bajaj Finserv for these as well. So, don’t worry and stay cool the smart way this summer!
