Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and obviously you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Rochester weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Brogan Heating & AC Inc to get all you can out of your air conditioner.
- The Right System for Your Home
With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Brogan Heating & AC Inc 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 other factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you 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. 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
There’s no reason 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 the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.
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 eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
When buying a new car, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Rochester to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
