Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Los Angeles 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 AZ Air Conditioning and Heating to maximize what you’re getting 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. AZ Air Conditioning and Heating 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
Taking advantage of 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. There’s no reason to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. There are also more advanced options to take advantage of 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 get some downtime.
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 necessary, and eliminate 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 regular maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment running properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Los Angeles to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
