Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Cooling

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Oxford weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 various factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. You’ll no longer have 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 alerting you to any service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need 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 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 has to, and cut down on unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    When buying a new car, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Oxford to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
