Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and obviously you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Arlington weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning to get the most out of your air conditioner.
- The Right System for Your Home
There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning can help you find the air conditioner that will be best for you by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and other factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Installing a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. You can also take advantage of more advanced options like remotely adjusting the temperature using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort® thermostat can perform advanced diagnostics on your air conditioner alerting you to any service needs.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.
Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to allow the cool air to get where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it needs to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
When you get a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and routine maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Arlington to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
