Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and of course you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the West Valley City weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning 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 easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for 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 to alert you to service needs.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, 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 allow the cool air to get where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it has to, and eliminate 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 operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in West Valley City to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
