Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Purchasing a new air conditioner for your home is a large investment, and you naturally want to make certain you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Colorado Springs weather. Generally, your air conditioner doesn’t demand much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Triton HVAC & Refrigeration to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    There’s no shortage of air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that fits your needs and the size of your home properly. Triton HVAC & Refrigeration 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
    Installing a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. You’ll no longer have to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. You can also take advantage of more advanced options 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 alert you to service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    There’s no reason to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When the sun is shining, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When it’s cooler, open the windows so your air conditioner can get some downtime.

    Close the vents and doors of unoccupied rooms to let the cool air flow where it’s needed. This will prevent making your air conditioner work harder than it has to, and cut down on unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    When buying a new car, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. You should do the same for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is the ideal time in Colorado Springs to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before summer really heats up.
