2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, March 13, 2012 MB AIRCONDITIONING KEEPING YOUR HOUSE COOL WHEN buying an aircon- ditioner, getting it right means keeping your house cool at low cost. It's important to choose an efficient model and one that suits your needs. Australian Bureau of Stat- istics figures show about three- quarters of Australian homes use aircon- ditioners or evaporative coolers. Ausgrid's energy ef- ficiency expert Paul Myors says aircon- ditioners that are either too big or too small can have a big impact on energy bills. As a rough guide, multiply the number of square metres you want to cool by 125W and compare this with the air- conditioner's output. Aircon- ditioning specialists take into account your floor space, win- dow area and insulation levels. The most popular models are wall-mounted reverse cycle units, which can cost up to 70c an hour to run. ''It's good to know that each extra star will give you about 10 per cent lower running costs,'' he says.
