Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Marshall 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 All Elements Heating & Air LLC to get the most 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. All Elements Heating & Air LLC 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. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it simple 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. 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. Help Your Air Conditioner Out There’s no reason 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 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. 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 be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Marshall to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
