Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. There’s no reason 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 alerting you to any service needs. Help Your Air Conditioner Out You don’t want to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When it’s sunny, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When the temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest. Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air flow 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 purchasing a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and regular maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in the Midlands to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
