Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Derby weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning 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 other factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Installing a programmable thermostat can make it simple to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. There’s no reason 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.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need 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 weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    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 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 regular maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Derby to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
