Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why Ambient Air wants to offer some simple tips to ensure 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—Take a look at 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 reach out to a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish 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 buying 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Ambient Air can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
