Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and you naturally want to ensure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Winnipeg weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve. Follow these tips from Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.
- 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. Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning 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 additional factors.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. You won’t need 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 warn you of service needs.
- 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 weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can get a break.
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 necessary, and get rid of unnecessary costs on your energy bills.
- 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. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the perfect time in Winnipeg to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
