Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Metro Atlanta weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from ACS Inc 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. ACS 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 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. More advanced options are also available 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 There’s no reason 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 get some downtime. 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 has to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance When buying a new car, 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 the perfect time in Metro Atlanta to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
