Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Dallas weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Tri County Air Care LLC 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Tri County Air Care LLC 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. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for 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 alert you to 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 it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get a break. 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 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 functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Dallas to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
