Living in a country that is consistently as hot as ours, it’s fair to say that the process of trying to stay as cool as possible is something takes up a large amount of our daily lives! Of course, the most immediate and most common solution to this temperature problem is to have air conditioning installed in your home, and here at Len Dowd & Co, we specialise in doing just that.


Air conditioning in Townsville
is something that is becoming more and more popular from residential homes to commercial buildings, but have you ever taken the time to think about whether it is actually efficient or not? To help you out, here are some great tips for making your own air conditioning more efficient.


  • Make sure to remember to clean all around the outdoor condenser unit of the system. Air conditioning absolutely works most efficiently and effectively if those component parts are completely clean and free of obstructive debris.

  • Have a go at vacuuming the indoor vents, as well as working to keep them completely unblocked. Additionally, it can also help the efficiency of your air conditioning if you can keep items like furniture, toys and blinds from blocking the vent holes.

  • Get into the habit of keeping things like lamps and other items that generate their own heat away from your thermostat in the home. These can give off false readings for the entire house, and therefore crank up the air conditioning when it isn’t actually needed to that degree.

  • On hot days, try to keep blinds and curtains closed at home, because this will help to keep the natural internal temperature of your house slightly lower. It the temperature is lower, then your air conditioning doesn't have to be on as high on a regular basis.

  • Try to avoid using appliances like your over or your dryer during the hottest hours of the summer day, just like lamps near the thermostat, doing so can create a false temperature inside that make the air conditioning work harder than it needs to.
