Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Wharton 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner. The Right System for Your Home There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Faust Air Conditioning and Heating 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 various 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 personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need 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 to warn you of 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 it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest. Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air to where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than necessary, and cut down on 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 routine maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Wharton to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
