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 Oxford weather. Generally, 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc to get the most out of your air conditioner.
- The Right System for Your Home
With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 additional factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need 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
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 allow the cool air to get 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.
- Don’t Forget About Maintenance
When you get a new vehicle, 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 running 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 really heats up.
