Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

It is a big investment to purchase a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to make sure you are optimizing the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. For the most part, your air conditioner operates without requiring much of your time or attention, but Aggressive Mechanical has a number of tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. Choose the Right System
    There are a number of options for air conditioners, which means you can find one that meets your demands. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of giving you cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Aggressive Mechanical can assist in identifying the best match by taking a look at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a few other factors. 

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Make it less stressful on yourself by getting a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is changing the way homeowners maintain home comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat lets you arrange a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to think twice about turning up the temperature before you’re away for the day. More innovative options for comfort control provide you with remote access, making it easy to adjust the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and run advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. During the day, typically when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a rest.

    If there are empty rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more regularly used. Not only does this get rid extra work from your air conditioner, but it also decreases unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    Most people purchasing a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires continuous monitoring to make sure it is working efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for an expert in Neptune City to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits. 

Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill. Contact Aggressive Mechanical in Neptune City with any questions by calling 732-806-5536.
