Sometimes, your air conditioner is inefficient or can no longer function properly because it is too old and worn down. In this case, the best solution is usually replacement. In fact, replacing a worn down air conditioner allows you the opportunity to upgrade to a new high-efficiency system for increased comfort and energy savings. But what if you want an upgrade before your air conditioner needs replacement?
Thankfully, you don’t have to wait for a brand new system to get more out of your AC this summer. Upgrading to a new zone control system or programmable thermostat may be the perfect way to stay cool this summer and save money in the long run.
Zone Control Systems
One great way to keep cool this summer is with a new zone control system. When you call for zone control installation, a technician installs multiple dampers in the ductwork of your home that open and close as you adjust the temperature. Each damper controls a different zone of your home, and each has its own thermostat as well. You and your family members can control the temperature in each room or zone with a separate thermostat, or one person can control every zone with a master thermostat.
This system not only benefits family members with different temperature preferences, but can also help you save money. If nobody uses the upstairs in the daytime, for example, you may choose to switch off the AC upstairs during that time.
If finding the right temperature seems tricky with your current thermostat, you may choose to invest in a new digital, programmable thermostat. Manual thermostats are sometimes tough to read and may be somewhat inaccurate. If the temperature in your home is only a couple of degrees lower than it needs to be, you may be spending too much money on your energy bills. A digital thermostat has a clear display, and you can program it ahead of time to save on cooling costs. Rather than leave your AC on all day while you’re away, set your system to come on 30 minutes before you arrive so your home is comfortable as soon as you get there.
