The lower the temperature, the faster your room cools down.
No, it doesn’t. The AC worked as hard regardless it’s 16°C or 25°C, producing the same amount of cooling air. Have patience!
On the fan and aircon at the same time to speed up cooling.
The AC has a system to circulate air around the room. Fan over the AC will actually hinder the ‘work’ of the AC, making it work even harder, thus increases energy usage, and your bill.
Aircon can be installed at any location in the house.
False. The less ideal location could affect the cooling time of your room, result in decreases of efficiency, increase your electricity bill and reducs the AC’s lifespan.
No servicing is required as long as my aircon is still running well.
The AC needs regular servicing just like a car. Many neglected the fact that dust and dirt would accumulate after some time and would affect the performance of the AC.
I can DIY service and clean my own air conditioner.
There are too many parts and components in an AC unit. One small mistake could lead to major issues and danger. Call a professional!
