Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Moline weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Freed Heating & Air Conditioning to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.
- 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. Freed Heating & 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
Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it simple to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. You won’t need 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 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 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 routine maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment running properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Moline to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
