Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Phoenix weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.
- 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. Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc 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 easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. There’s no reason 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
You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. On a sunny day, 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 a break.
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 purchasing a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and regular maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Phoenix to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
