Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and of course you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Abilene weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Abilene Air-Tech 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. Abilene Air-Tech 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. 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. 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 temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest. 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 has 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 routine maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Abilene to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
