Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and of course you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Irvine weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from True Home Heating and Air Conditioning to get all you can out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. True Home Heating and Air Conditioning 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 various factors.

  2. 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. There’s no reason to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. More advanced options are also available 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.

  3. 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 the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.

    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 needs to, and eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. 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 functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Irvine to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
