Being a first-time homeowner is very 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 Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills 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 arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We know 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 shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
