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 ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Hauppauge weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Cool Power LLC to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner. The Right System for Your Home There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Cool Power LLC 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 Taking advantage of 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. You’ll no longer have 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 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 get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance When buying a new car, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Hauppauge to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
