Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Genoa 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 Assured Appliance and Heating & Air to get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Assured Appliance and Heating & Air 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.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it simple to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for 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 to warn you of service needs.

  3. 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 temperature drops, 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 needs to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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 operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Genoa to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
