Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Plainfield weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc to get all you can 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. PWA Heating & Cooling 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 various 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 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
    You don’t need 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 weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    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 get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    When you get 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 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 the uncomfortable summer heat.
