Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe 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 home.
That’s why AW Heating & Air Conditioning wants to provide some simple tips to make sure 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—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 issues, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, AW Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
