Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Plainfield weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can help you find the air conditioner that will be best 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
    Taking advantage of 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. You won’t need to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. There are also more advanced options to take advantage of 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.

  3. 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 rest.

    Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to allow the cool air to get 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.

  4. 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 operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Plainfield to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
