Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and of course you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the York weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Strine's Heating & 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning 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. There’s no reason 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
You don’t need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When it’s sunny, 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 a break.
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 get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
When you get 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 operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in York to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
