Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Locust weather. Usually, 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 Dynamic Comfort Solutions to get the most 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Dynamic Comfort Solutions 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 additional factors. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls Installing 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. 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. When it’s sunny, 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 some downtime. 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 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 routine maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment running properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Locust to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
