How This Aircon Remote Control Saves Energy
Air conditioning is the most common contributor to high electricity bills. The Bill Buster air conditioning remote offers several unique features to help reduce your energy consumption.
1) Introducing 'Simulate Mode' AKA The Placebo Effect
Do you know someone who sets the AC to 16˚C in summer, or 28˚C in winter, regardless of conditions? This doesn't help the air conditioner 'work faster' - it just costs you in increased energy usage and bills.
With Bill Buster, you can set a minimum cooling temperature and a maximum heating temperature to avoid this wastage. For every 1˚C adjustment (up in summer, and down in winter) you can save up to 10% of your heating and cooling costs.
NOTE: The remote's display screen will still allow the user to adjust temperatures above or below these settings, but they will not be sent to the air conditioner. Bill Buster calls this 'Simulate Mode' - you might call it enforced savings mode. We think you'll find it's a great example of the placebo effect in action, as people tend not to notice.
2) Set Air Conditioner On & Off Times
All too often we hear of people leaving air conditioners on all day or night. This is especially true in accommodation settings such as holiday rentals, Airbnb, motels, and hotels.
With Bill Buster, you can automatically send an 'off' signal to your air conditioner at a specified time every day. So anytime the AC is accidentally left on, it can now be automatically turned off.
You can also program a daily 'on' time. This is ideal for taking the heat out of the house in summer, just before everyone arrives home. Or taking the chill out of the house in winter just before you get up in the morning. Both of these examples use way less energy than leaving the AC on all day or night.
3) Air Conditioner Countdown Timer & Sleep Mode
Bill Buster's countdown timer ensures you won't accidentally leave the air conditioner on after a short period of usage. It's ideal for meeting rooms at work, or a simple way to save energy overnight (eg. run the AC for an hour as you go to bed). The timer can be set in 30-minute time increments.
Another energy-saving option is the 'sleep' function. This feature helps you save energy even while you sleep. Here's how it works:
- In one hour after hitting 'sleep', the temperature setpoint automatically goes up by 1˚C in summer (or down in winter).
- In two hours the temperature adjusts by a further 1˚C.
- After eight hours, the AC turns off.
The Bill Buster air conditioning remote control comes with a wall mount so you won't misplace it. This also ensures the remote remains within range of the AC at all times.
