What temperature should the air conditioner run at in winter?
There are different recommended settings for your air conditioner in summer and winter. How efficient the system is, how long you can use it and how much electricity it will use also depends on how well you use it.
In this article, we'll look at what the correct air conditioning setting is in winter and why it's essential.
Why is it important how many degrees you set your air conditioner to?
It's not enough to just choose an air conditioner with a high energy rating and lots of convenient features. You also need to know how to achieve the best conditions, whether you use an air conditioner at home or in the office. In fact, if you're not setting up your air conditioning system correctly, it affects several key areas.
The conditions we live in are known to affect our health. Especially the conditions indoors where we spend more time.
If your air conditioning is set too low in the winter, your body can become more susceptible to colds and asthma.
If the environment you live in is too humid, this favours the emergence and spread of fungi, moulds and dust mites.
Too low or high a temperature can also hinder quality sleep. In order to wake up fresh and rested in the morning, determining the right air conditioning setting is crucial.
In addition to our health, the wrong temperature will also affect the way we feel.
If the room is too cold, you may start to eat more. You might even overeat. This is the body's reaction to a lower temperature.
Also because of the cold conditions your muscles may stiffen and you may feel faint.
Especially if you work from home or use air conditioning in your office, the inappropriate temperature can also affect your performance.
If you want to run your air conditioner economically, it's good to know what the appropriate settings are. For example, if possible, use Eco mode or night mode when you are asleep or not in the room.
What temperature should you set your air conditioner to in winter?
For different people, the best temperature may be different. The appropriate settings during different parts of the day also vary.
During the day, the average suitable temperature is between 22 and 25-26. Make sure your home is well insulated and the air conditioner is the right size for the room. If all this is in place, you should be comfortable.
What is the right temperature for the air conditioner at night in winter?
The average comfortable temperature for most adults during sleep is around 19ºC, and for young children and babies around 20-22ºC. Note that blankets also help to raise the temperature.
However, we would like to point out that for different people, a difference of 2-3ºC can be many times more comfortable. Therefore, we advise you to consult with the other members of the household and decide at what air conditioning settings you feel best.
To enjoy comfortable conditions and efficient air conditioning, we advise you to maintain your air conditioner and monitor its performance. Change air filters regularly, check for leaks and drain line blockages. This will also ensure low energy consumption during the busiest month of the year.
