Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Carpentersville weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc 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 additional factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of 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. 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.

  3. 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 the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    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 it needs to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Carpentersville to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
