Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Buying 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 Circleville 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 Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, 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.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized 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. 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.

  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 temperature drops, 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 cut down on 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 routine maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Circleville to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
