Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

It is a big investment to buy a new air conditioner for your home. So, it makes sense to ensure you are optimizing the performance of the air conditioner to benefit your home. Usually, your air conditioner operates without requiring much of your time or attention, but Danco Heating & Cooling 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 offering cooler air, there are different sizes available to fit the size of your home. Danco Heating & Cooling can help you find the ideal match by looking at your square footage, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof and a number of other factors. 

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Make it simpler on yourself by installing a programmable thermostat or comfort control. Technology is altering the way homeowners maintain home comfort. For a simpler option, a programmable thermostat means you can set up a temperature schedule for the week. You won’t need to worry about turning up the temperature before you’re gone all day. More advanced options for comfort control give you remote access, making it easy to alter 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, typically 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 frequently used. Not only does this eliminate extra work from your air conditioner, but it also minimizes 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 continued monitoring to make sure it is running efficiently. Now is a great time to schedule an appointment for an expert in Minocqua 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 Danco Heating & Cooling in Minocqua with any questions by calling 715-356-7000.
