Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.
That’s why American HVAC Inc wants to provide some simple tips to be sure 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for more 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 establish a schedule in the week and not worry about regularly 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, American HVAC Inc can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
