Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Excelsior Springs weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Colvin's Heating and Cooling to get the most 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. Colvin's Heating and Cooling 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 various 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. 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
There’s no reason 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 rest.
Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air flow 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.
- 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 operating properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Excelsior Springs to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
