Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe 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 house.
That’s why Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
