Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s beneficial to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
