Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Paso Robles weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Paso Robles Heating and Air to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Paso Robles Heating and Air can help you find the air conditioner that’s the perfect fit for your home by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and other factors.

  2. 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 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.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need 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 temperature drops, 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 needs to, and eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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 running properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Paso Robles to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
