Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and possibly 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 West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp 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—Review the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or problems, 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 costs is to monitor 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 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 right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
