Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely 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 home.
That’s why Halverson Brothers Inc wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest 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 arrange a schedule in 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 immediately, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Halverson Brothers Inc can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
