Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 It is a big investment to get a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are optimizing the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. For the most part, your air conditioner operates without requiring much of your time or attention, but Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc has a few tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner. Choose the Right System There are various options for air conditioners, which means you can find one that meets your unique needs. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of giving you cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc can help you find the perfect match by looking at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a number of other factors. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Make it less stressful on yourself by getting a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is changing the way homeowners maintain their comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat means you can set up a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t have to think about turning up the temperature before you’re gone all day. More progressive options for comfort control provide you with remote access, making it easy to adjust the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and run advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs. Help Your Air Conditioner Out There’s no need to make your air conditioner run harder than necessary. During the day, usually when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a rest. If there are unoccupied rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more commonly used. Not only does this diminish extra work from your air conditioner, but it also lessens unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance Most people getting a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires continued monitoring to make sure it is running efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for an expert in Bossier City to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits. Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill.
