Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new home.
That’s why Central Heating & Plumbing wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of 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 know 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 more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor 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 purchasing 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 identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Central Heating & Plumbing can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
