Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

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 Rocky Mount weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there are always ways to improve. Follow these tips from Davis Heating & Air Conditioning to get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. 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. Davis Heating & Air Conditioning 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.

  2. 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 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. 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 to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no reason 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 it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    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 has to, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    When purchasing a new vehicle, 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 ideal time in Rocky Mount to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
