Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 Cool Air Solutions wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.
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 problems, 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 costs 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 set a schedule throughout 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Cool Air Solutions can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 system work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
