conditioners circulate the cool air throughout the house to maintain the
temperature. Most Australian households having air conditioners reduce their
usage to save money on electricity consumption bills. After all, constant use

evaporator coil converts the liquid refrigerant into a gaseous form. Heat gets
absorbed from the indoor air and passes through the refrigerant. As it passes
through the coil, the inside air gets cool. The blower fan in the indoor unit
functions to pump the cool back into the room through ductwork. It provides a
refrigerated cooling experience
in hot summers.

factors decide the cost of refrigerated air conditioning. You cannot determine
the exact cost as it depends on the usage, location, season, room size, and
can calculate the energy consumption of an Air conditioner (AC). It requires
the unit or kilowatt (kW) consumption on your bill amount. You should know that
1 kW is equivalent to 1000 watts. If there is a consumption of 60 watts in an
hour then the consumption of electricity will be 60 watts x 60 hours, summing
up to 3600 watts per hour. It is 3.6 kWh of electricity consumed in AC
time frame of AC operations also matters for estimating the accurate cost of
electricity consumption. It tends to differ in every household according to the
need and number of AC installed. The average daily cost of the AC operation is around $0.77 according to the

Buy the AC at the right time as the installation and purchasing costs can be fairly seasonal.
Always keep the air conditioners clean for effective functioning. Annual or monthly maintenance should be done regularly. Continuous maintenance is a cost-effective solution. It allows you to repair the component before it gets completely damaged.
