Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and of course you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the the Rio Grande Valley weather. Usually, 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 Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. 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 additional factors.
- 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 customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. You won’t need 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.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want 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 to where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than necessary, 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 routine 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 the Rio Grande Valley to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
