Aware of the arrival of winter, we propose five tips to make the most of the home’s air conditioning system.
As a first step, bleed the radiators. By releasing air into the circuit, the radiator will release heat evenly and save energy and money. It only takes a coin or a screwdriver to unscrew the drain screw and the waterfalls into a container. Until all the air has been expelled and only water comes out, the screw is not closed.
Another measure to take into account is to monitor the pressure of the circuit. In any domestic installation, the pressure must be between 1 and 1.5 bar, so it is a good idea to check it regularly to avoid misuse of the system. It should be remembered that the pressure check must be done when it is not in operation because the pressure shoots up due to the expansion.
Do not forget to vary the water supply temperature to the radiators or fan-coils depending on the outside temperature. That is, if the outside temperature is high, the regulator is raised and vice versa.
As a fourth tip, visually monitor no water leaks, neither in the radiators nor in the visible parts of the entire installation.
Finally, it is recommended to carry out a periodic check of the boiler to prevent problems and work at full capacity.
