How to Get an Amazing Central AC System

Air conditioning is a central focus of any home in Florida. It’s hot here and we work hard to make sure that our homes are cool. When you’re thinking about comfort, we’re sure that you’re thinking of ways that you can improve your home’s air conditioning in Palm City, FL. We want to help you with this. Air conditioning improvement can be simple. If you’d like to improve your home’s air conditioning this year, then there are a few things you can do to get the process started.

Tips to Improve Your AC

Here are a few tips to improve your home’s air conditioning performance this winter. 

Improve Your Insulation 

The first thing you want to do if you’re struggling to improve your air conditioning system is to improve your insulation. We like to start homeowners off here because improving a home’s insulation always helps. On top of this, sometimes the air conditioner isn’t even the problem. The problem is that heat is rapidly entering the home because it’s moving in through the walls, underneath the doors, and on the sides of the windows. The AC is fighting a losing battle against this influx of heat.

Upgrade (Or Move) Your Thermostat

The next thing you want to do is upgrade the thermostat. Sometimes, the upgrade that’s necessary for you is a literal upgrade. If you have a thermostat that still uses a dial or a toggle, then it’s definitely time for you to upgrade. The efficiency that smart or Wi-Fi thermostats offer outperform older thermostats. 

Another upgrade that might be right for you is simply moving the thermostat from one wall to another. Maybe your thermostat is just in a bad place in your home. If it’s in a place that isn’t getting an accurate reading, then it’s a great idea to move it for better performance. 

Invest in Maintenance

Investing in maintenance is something we encourage homeowners to do annually because it prepares your air conditioner for success. This is something that’s especially true in a place like Florida. We use our air conditioners more often and for longer periods of time than homeowners in any other part of the country. It’s a wise idea to take proper care of your system because of this. 

Choose Smart Thermostat Settings

It’s a good idea to choose smart settings for your home’s thermostat as well. We live in a hot climate and, sometimes, a super chilly setting on the thermostat just seems right. We can assure you that it’s probably not the best for your home in the long run. Higher settings put less strain on your home’s air conditioning system. 

Know When It’s Time to Replace

If you’ve had your home’s air conditioning system for upwards of a decade and it’s still giving you issues, then it means that it’s time to consider a replacement. It’s unwise to continually repair an out-of-date system. A replacement can actually save you money and it can definitely save you a headache.
