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 West Palm Beach weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Summit Air Conditioning Inc to maximize what you’re getting 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. Summit Air Conditioning Inc can help you find the air conditioner that’s the perfect fit for your home by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and additional factors. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Utilizing 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’ll no longer have 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 alerting you to any 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 it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime. Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air to where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it has to, and eliminate 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. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in West Palm Beach to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
