Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and obviously you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Alice weather. Generally, 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 Rescue Heating & Air 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Rescue Heating & Air 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.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Installing a programmable thermostat can make it simple to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. There’s no reason to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. You can also take advantage of more advanced options 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.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no reason to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.

    Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air flow where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it needs to, and cut down on 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 regular maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment running properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Alice to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
