Cooling Energy and Savings Facts
Use an energy efficient air-conditioner. A 1.5kw unit will cost you $2 for 10 hours, where a 4kw unit is more than double at $5.75. That’s a saving of $450 over a 4 month period. *Based on 10 hours/day.
Our bodies adapt to changes in seasons and climate. Set
your thermostat at 18-20°C in winter and no less than 26°C in summer.
In winter, 22°C may feel too hot and in summer it may feel too cold. People who live in warmer climates have a higher tolerance for heat and will probably find that a much higher temperature than 22°C feels comfortable. Save Energy
