Why is your Air Conditioner Costing so much to run?

Don’t sweat out the summer
October 24, 2016

Your ducted air conditioning system has probably developed air leakage over time; sadly many have had air leakage from the moment they have been installed.

When your air conditioning system leaks air it dramatically reduces the performance and increases the running costs.

Your air conditioning system also needs to be properly insulated, so that the heating or cooling isn’t lost.

This includes the flexible ducting, zoning, fittings and even the copper piping connecting the indoor unit to the outdoor unit. Insulation problems can be either a lack of insulation being used or the poor quality of the insulation itself.

The impacts of air leakage and poor insulation includes an increase in running costs and energy use (up to 45% extra energy) and the system being unable to maintain comfortable conditions even if the unit has adequate capacity.

So what is the Solution?

Retrofitting (Replacing) part of or all of the flexible duct, zoning and fittings that are causing the air and thermal leakage. You must ensure you are replacing your old ducting with high quality products that have been tested and proven to reduce your running costs.
