Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Hamilton weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC to get the most out of your air conditioner.
- The Right System for Your Home
There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC can help you find the air conditioner that’s perfect for you by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and additional 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 personalized 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.
- 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 it has to, and cut down on unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
When purchasing a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and routine maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Hamilton to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
