Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Bossier City weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning 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 additional factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Installing a programmable thermostat can make it simple 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. 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.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When it’s sunny, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When the temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.
Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air flow 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 you get a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Bossier City to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
