Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

It is a big investment to get a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are improving the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. Typically, your air conditioner runs without requiring much of your time or attention, but Effective Service Group, LLC. has a number of tips that will help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

  1. Choose the Right System
    There are a variety of options for air conditioners, which means you can find one that meets your requirements. While all air conditioners serve the purpose of providing cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Effective Service Group, LLC. can help you find the ideal match by noting your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a couple other factors. 

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Make it simpler on yourself by adding a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is transforming the way homeowners maintain home comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat allows you to customize a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t have to think about turning up the temperature before you’re gone all day. More advanced options for comfort control offer you remote access, making it easy to adjust the temperature from any location using your phone, tablet or laptop. Comfort controls such as the iComfort Wi-Fi® even monitor your air conditioner and run advanced diagnostics to alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no need to make your air conditioner operate harder than necessary. During the day, usually when it’s sunny, close the blinds and windows to keep warmer air and the heat from raising the indoor temperature. On cooler nights, open up the windows and give your air conditioner a little time off.

    If there are empty rooms, close the vents and doors. This allows the cool air to travel to rooms that are more regularly used. Not only does this get rid extra work from your air conditioner, but it also decreases unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    Most people buying a new vehicle follow the recommendations for oil changes and routine maintenance. An air conditioner is an investment as well and requires regular monitoring to make sure it is working efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for a professional in East Hanover to come check out your air conditioner before the warmer weather hits. 

Follow these tips and you’ll see the benefit in the performance of your air conditioner and the savings on your energy bill. Contact Effective Service Group, LLC. in East Hanover with any questions by calling 973-884-0065.
