It is a big investment to buy a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are improving the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. For the most part, your air conditioner works without requiring much of your time or attention, but Gordon Air Conditioning has a number of tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.
- Choose the Right System
There are a number of options for air conditioners, which means you have the freedom to find one that meets your demands. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of offering cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Gordon Air Conditioning can help identify the ideal match by taking a look at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a couple other factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Make it simpler on yourself by adding a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is altering the way homeowners maintain home comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat allows you to arrange a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to think twice about turning up the temperature before you’re gone all day. More innovative options for comfort control offer you remote access, making it easy to adjust the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and run advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
There’s no need to make your air conditioner run harder than necessary. During the day, typically when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a rest.
If there are vacant rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more commonly used. Not only does this diminish extra work from your air conditioner, but it also decreases unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
Most people purchasing a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires continuous monitoring to make sure it is working efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for a pro in Crestview to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits.
Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill. Contact Gordon Air Conditioning in Crestview with any questions by calling 850-250-0335.
