Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Crestview weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Gordon Air Conditioning to get all you can out of your air conditioner. The Right System for Your Home With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Gordon Air Conditioning 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. 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. You won’t need 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 warn you of service needs. 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 a break. 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 necessary, and eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance When buying a new car, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and routine maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Crestview to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
