By following some tips, you can help keep the air conditioner operating efficiently for your home. This will increase the comfort level in the home for you and your family. The best way to keep the system working efficiently is to have regular maintenance inspections scheduled. Without inspections, the parts can start to wear and will work harder than they otherwise should. Lack of maintenance can be increase the chance of a failure to the HVAC system.
Tips for the Thermostat
Other tips to follow include the thermostat. Make sure that the thermostat is not constantly adjusted. If you turn the thermostat down to cool the home, it may not help to cool it any faster. It will cool at the same rate no matter what it is set at. The most ideal and efficient temperature to have it set at is 78 degrees F. You can even adjust it so the house is not as cool when you are away at work. The best way to do this is to invest in a programmable thermostat. Scheduling it to adjust to your ideal temperature when you are home will help reduce the amount of strain and wear on it. If the set temperature and actual temperature are different, make sure that we are contacted for an inspection. That way we can ensure the thermostat is working properly.
Also remember to keep the blinds and curtains closed when it is sunny outside. This will reduce the chance of the home becoming warmer than it otherwise should. If the home heats up, then the air conditioner will turn on to help cool the home down. If the air conditioner has to constantly run to cool the home, parts and components will wear out sooner. It will also lead to more repairs needing to be done over time as well. If you notice any issues, make sure to have it inspected as soon as possible.
