Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Madera weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. to get the most 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Brian’s Heating & Cooling, 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 various 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’ll no longer have to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. There are also more advanced options to take advantage of 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 want 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 a break.

    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 necessary, and eliminate 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 regular maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Madera to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
