air conditioning videos for garden office
In the video below, I explain how to work out if your garden studio windows are north facing. If they are north facing, you probably won't need the cooling aspect of an air conditioner in your garden office...(see my comments at the bottom of this page, about costs)

TIPS FOR GETTING THE BEST OUT OF YOUR AC...
As well as an annual service...
In the summer. once a month, run your AC in cooling mode (Snow flake on indoor unit display) for 30 mins on the lowest temperature setting (16 or 17 degrees.)
Then use your remote to turn it off for 3 minutes (This allows the refrigerant to settle.)
Then use your remote to switch back on in HEAT mode (SUN on indoor unit display.) and put it on it's highest temperature for 30 mins (32 degrees.)
In the winter, do it the other way round - run the heat mode first, switch off, then run the cold mode.
This keeps your system valves in good order.
You should also check the dust filters every 3 months and clean by hoovering with a brush or wash in warm water with a small amount of washing up liquid. Leave to dry naturally.
Turn off your AC power at the mains the check that your outdoor unit has no trees or twigs interfering with the blades. Wash the fins gently with a hosepipe to remove grit and dust. Allow to dry before turning mains back on.
ALSO NOTE - if the outside temperature is less than 8 degrees different
