Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Mobile weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc to get all you can 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. Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc 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 Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch 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. 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 need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. On a sunny day, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get a break. 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 needs 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 perfect time in Mobile to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
