It is a big investment to buy a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are boosting the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. Usually, your air conditioner works without requiring much of your time or attention, but Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces has a number of tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.
- Choose the Right System
There are a number of options for air conditioners, which means you have the freedom to find one that meets your demands. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of giving you cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces can help identify the best match by looking at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a couple 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 altering the way homeowners maintain ideal comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat lets you customize a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to think twice about turning up the temperature before you’re away for the day. More advanced options for comfort control offer you remote access, making it easy to change 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 operate harder than necessary. During the day, typically 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 regularly used. Not only does this eliminate extra work from your air conditioner, but it also decreases unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
Most people buying 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 operating efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for a pro in Alliance 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. Contact Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance with any questions by calling 308-321-4703.
