Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

May 08, 2015

Getting a new air conditioner for your home is a major investment, and of course you want to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit out of it with the Bend weather. Usually, your air conditioner doesn’t need much of your time or attention, but there’s always room for improvement. Follow these tips from Tri County Climate Control LLC to maximize what you’re getting out of your air conditioner.

  1. The Right System for Your Home
    With all the air conditioner options out there, we can design a system that perfectly matches your needs and the size of your home properly. Tri County Climate Control LLC 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 additional factors.

  2. Use a Programmable Thermostat or Comfort Controls
    Taking advantage of a programmable thermostat can make it a cinch for you to control your comfort. Using a programmable thermostat, you can set a personalized temperature schedule a week at a time. You won’t need to worry about adjusting the temperature before or after work or before bed. More advanced options are also available 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 alerting you to any service needs.

  3. Help Your Air Conditioner Out
    You don’t need to make your air conditioner work harder than necessary. When it’s sunny, keep the indoor heat from rising by closing the blinds and windows. When the weather cools down, open the windows so your air conditioner can rest.

    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 necessary, and cut down on unnecessary costs on your energy bills.

  4. Don’t Forget About Maintenance
    When purchasing a new vehicle, most people follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on the frequency of oil changes and annual maintenance. You should be doing the same thing for your air conditioner to keep your investment functioning properly and efficiently. Spring is an excellent time in Bend to schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect and maintain your air conditioner before the uncomfortable summer heat.
