Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.
That’s why H & H Service Company wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand 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 understand 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 contact a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout the week and not worry about constantly 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 wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, H & H Service Company can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
