Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

It is a big investment to purchase a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are optimizing the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. Typically, your air conditioner operates without requiring much of your time or attention, but Custom Air Systems Inc has a couple tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. Choose the Right System
    There are a number of options for air conditioners, which means you have the freedom to find one that meets your requirements. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of giving you cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Custom Air Systems Inc can help identify the best match by taking a look at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a couple other factors. 

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Make it easier on yourself by installing a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is altering the way homeowners maintain their comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat means you can customize a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to worry about turning up the temperature before you’re gone all day. More innovative options for comfort control provide you with remote access, making it easy to alter the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and have advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no need to make your air conditioner operate harder than necessary. During the day, typically when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a chance to rest.

    If there are vacant rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more frequently used. Not only does this get rid extra work from your air conditioner, but it also minimizes unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    Most people getting a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires continuous monitoring to make sure it is running efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for an expert in Port St. Lucie to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits. 

Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill. Contact Custom Air Systems Inc in Port St. Lucie with any questions by calling 772-247-2283.
