Installing a Carrier Central Air Conditioning System in your Calgary home is a great way to beat the heat this summer, but did you know air conditioning units provide more benefits than creating a comfortable living environment?
A professionally installed central air conditioning system can improve the air quality within your home, reduce allergens, and provide increased home security by allowing you to keep your doors and windows closed and locked at all times. Like everything else in your home, your air conditioning unit should be treated with care and maintained regularly to ensure it’s running at its best.
Here are 3 things you can do to make sure your air conditioner keeps you cool and comfortable all summer long.
1. Keep it clean
Check your owners manual for directions on how to access the fins on your unit. Once you’ve removed the metal fin covering, use the soft-bristle brush attachment on your vacuum to carefully clean any dirt, dust, and debris from the fins of your unit. This is also a good time to replace the air filter on your unit to promote the best air quality possible within your home.
2. Upgrade your thermostat
The days of analogue thermostats like those brown boxes seen on the walls around your grandparents house are gone – advancements in technology have made it easier than ever to ensure you have complete control over the environment in your home. Upgrading to a Smart Thermostat that can be controlled from an app on your phone can boost savings by allowing you to control the temperature in your home no matter where you are.
3. Do your part
Keeping your home cool and comfortable involves more than turning your unit on and letting it go. Ensuring your thermostat is set to the ideal temperature, using exhaust fans, avoiding the use of heat-emitting appliances during the hottest periods of the day, and adjusting your sleeping habits are all simple ways to take some of the pressure off your air conditioning unit. Doing your part will help protect your investment, lower maintenance costs, and keep your unit running as efficiently as possible.
