Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Getting 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 West Palm Beach weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc to get all you can 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida 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 Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch 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. 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 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 temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can get a break. 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 needs to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills. Don’t Forget About Maintenance When you get a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and regular 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 West Palm Beach to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
