Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Muskogee 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 Hix Air Conditioning Service, 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 perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Hix Air Conditioning Service, 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
Installing 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. You’ll no longer have 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 alert you to service needs.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When it’s sunny, 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 flow 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 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 Muskogee to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
