Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Carson City weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Anderson Heating & A/C to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Anderson Heating & A/C 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 various factors.

  2. 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. 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 to warn you of service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no reason to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, 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 you get a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Carson City to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
