Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and you naturally want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Grand Prairie 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 Bon Air Service Company to maximize what you’re getting 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. Bon Air Service 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 additional factors.

  2. 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 customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. There’s no reason 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 alerting you to any 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 the temperature drops, 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 needs to, and cut down on 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. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Grand Prairie to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
