Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Bloomington 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 All Seasons Heating & A/C Co to maximize what you’re getting 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. All Seasons Heating & A/C Co 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 various factors. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Taking advantage of 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. You’ll no longer have 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 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 it’s sunny, 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 flow 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 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 an excellent time in Bloomington to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
