Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly throughout the summer season.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about always adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
