Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space 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 Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. wants to share some simple tips to ensure 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?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule throughout 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.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
