Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner05/08/2015 Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Springfield weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Bormida Mechanical Services Inc to maximize what you’re getting 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 meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Bormida Mechanical Services Inc 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 additional 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 personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need 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 alerting you to any 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 weather cools down, 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 regular maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Springfield to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
