Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why I-Deal HVAC wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you have a sense 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills 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 set a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, I-Deal HVAC can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We know 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.
