Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.
That’s why Olde Towne Heating & Air wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to watch 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 in the week and not worry about constantly 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 wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Olde Towne Heating & Air can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
