Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Northern Comfort Inc to get all you can out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home

Northern Comfort Inc can help you find the air conditioner that’s the perfect fit for your home by considering your square footage; how well your windows; walls and roof are insulated; and other factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Utilizing a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can customize your temperature schedule for a week at a time. You’ll no longer have to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. There are also more advanced options to take advantage of 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.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need 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 temperature drops, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air to 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.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
