Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 house.
That’s why Total Comfort wants to share some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly throughout the summer season.
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 beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout 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 right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Total Comfort can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 traded 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.
