Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why James Heating & A/C, Inc wants to share some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.
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 useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill 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 arrange 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 purchasing one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, James Heating & A/C, Inc can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize 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 AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
