Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and possibly 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 home.
That’s why North Mechanical Heating and Cooling wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a sense 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor 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 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, North Mechanical Heating and Cooling can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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.
