Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Cooling

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and of course you want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Brandon weather. Normally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. to get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. 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 various factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for 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 to warn you of service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no reason 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 the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.

    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 you get a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and regular maintenance. The same applies for your air conditioner to keep your investment operating properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Brandon to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer is in full swing.
