Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling to maximize what you’re getting 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 Unlimited Heating & Cooling can help you find the air conditioner that will be best for you 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 easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. You won’t need 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 alert you to service needs. Help Your Air Conditioner Out You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. On a sunny day, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When the weather cools down, 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 necessary, and cut down on 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 annual maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
