Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and of course you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Montoursville weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Airmen HVAC Service to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Airmen HVAC Service 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 various factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Installing a programmable thermostat can make it simple to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. There’s no reason to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. More advanced options are also available 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 to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. On a sunny day, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air to where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than necessary, and cut down on unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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 annual maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Montoursville to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
