Buying a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and obviously you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Laguna Niguel 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 Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating to get all you can out of your air conditioner.
- The Right System for Your Home
There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that meets all of your needs and the size of your home properly. Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating can help you find the air conditioner that’s the perfect fit for your home by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and other factors.
- 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 set a custom temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need 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.
- Help Your Air Conditioner Out
You don’t want 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 the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.
Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to allow the cool air to get where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it has to, and eliminate unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- 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 functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Laguna Niguel to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
