Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

It is a big investment to purchase a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to make sure you are optimizing the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. For the most part, your air conditioner works without requiring much of your time or attention, but All Seasons Heating & A/C Co has a couple tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. Choose the Right System
    There are a variety of options for air conditioners, which means you have the chance to find one that meets your unique needs. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of giving you cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. All Seasons Heating & A/C Co can help identify the ideal match by noting your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a few other factors. 

  2. 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 their comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat allows you to customize a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to think twice about turning up the temperature before you leave the house for the day. More progressive options for comfort control provide you with remote access, making it easy to alter 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.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no need to make your air conditioner operate harder than necessary. During the day, usually 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 little time off.

    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 get rid extra work from your air conditioner, but it also lessens unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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 regular monitoring to make sure it is operating efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for a professional in Bloomington 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 All Seasons Heating & A/C Co in Bloomington with any questions by calling 812-332-9100.
