Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and of course you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Crystal and Twin Cities weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from GV Heating & Air 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. GV Heating & Air can help you find the air conditioner that’s the perfect fit for your home by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and other 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 won’t need 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 to warn you of service needs.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want 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 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 get rid of 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 annual maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Crystal and Twin Cities to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
