Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

It is a big investment to buy a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to make certain that you are improving the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. Usually, your air conditioner works without requiring much of your time or attention, but Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. has a number of tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. Choose the Right System
    There are various options for air conditioners, which means you have the freedom to find one that meets your demands. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of providing cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. can help you find the best match by taking a look at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a number of other factors. 

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Make it easier on yourself by getting a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is altering the way homeowners maintain ideal comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat means you can customize a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to worry about turning up the temperature before you’re away for the day. More innovative options for comfort control offer you remote access, making it easy to adjust the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and run advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. During the day, especially when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a rest.

    If there are vacant rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more frequently used. Not only does this diminish extra work from your air conditioner, but it also minimizes unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    Most people getting a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires continuous monitoring to make sure it is running efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for a pro in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits. 

Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill. Contact Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio with any questions by calling 419-592-4756.
