Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.
That’s why TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical wants to share some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.
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 helpful 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 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 establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly 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 right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s useful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
