Summer Season Tips

American Standard Colorado ComfortSummer can be tough on your system, which is why it’s important to start the season off right. “One of the most important ways a homeowner can actively contribute to extending the life of his or her air conditioner is to have a yearly inspection prior to each cooling season. This will guarantee that the unit is prepared to work properly and at maximum efficiency.”

Here are five tips to help you get the most out of your air conditioner:
  • Before summer begins, have your home’s air conditioning system cleaned and checked by a reputable dealer.
  • Invest in a good quality, pleated air filter designed to capture more dust and debris and clean it frequently, at least every 30 days.
  • Add insulation to your attic and weatherproof your house by covering all exposed windows and by weather-stripping all doors and windows.
  • Keep programmable thermostats at 78 degrees (F) or higher when not at home (for each degree you raise the thermostat above 78 degrees, you save up to five percent on cooling costs). If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, consider purchasing one. It’s worth the investment.
  • Dust or vacuum the vents in your home often to ensure the free flow of cool air.

Routinely replacing or cleaning the filters will help your air conditioner operate smoothly. Clogged or dirty filters block normal airflow and can reduce a system's efficiency over time. In addition, take a walk around your yard. If trees or other plants shade your home, make sure that leaves and sticks are regularly cleared away from your air conditioner.
