Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Chelan and Wenatchee weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Lakeside Heating & Air to get the most out of your air conditioner.
- 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. Lakeside Heating & Air can help you find the air conditioner that’s perfect for you 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 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. 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
There’s no reason 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 some downtime.
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 necessary, and eliminate 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 annual maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Chelan and Wenatchee to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
