Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and obviously you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Auburn weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Forster Heating to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There are a lot of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Forster Heating 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 other factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Installing a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized 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. 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 alerting you to any service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need 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 it’s cooler, 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 necessary, and eliminate 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 routine maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Auburn to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
