Cooling

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a big investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the New Castle weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t require much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Central Heating & Plumbing to get all you can 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. Central Heating & Plumbing 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
    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. 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 to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, 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 to 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 you get 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 running properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in New Castle to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
