Being a first-time homeowner is very 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 space.
That’s why Kilbourne Heating & AC wants to share some simple tips to make sure 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge 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 more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill 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 during the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Kilbourne Heating & AC can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 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.
