Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and obviously you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Thousand Oaks weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Air Max HVAC Inc to get all you can 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Air Max HVAC 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 other factors. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Installing a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need 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 alerting you to any service needs. Help Your Air Conditioner Out You don’t need 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 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 to where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it needs to, and eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance When purchasing a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and regular maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Thousand Oaks to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
