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 ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Belton weather. Generally, 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc. to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner. The Right System for Your Home There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Bell Air Conditioning Inc. 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 Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it simple 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. 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 warn you of service needs. Help Your Air Conditioner Out There’s no reason 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 temperature drops, 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 has to, and cut down on 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 be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Belton to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
