Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and you naturally want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Williamsport weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Lycoming Heating Company to maximize what you’re getting 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 fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Lycoming Heating Company can help you find the air conditioner that will be best for you by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and various factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Utilizing 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. You’ll no longer have 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.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t need 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 the temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can get a break.
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 it has 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 functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Williamsport to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
