Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house 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 Pliescott HVAC Services LLC wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.
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 issues, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Pliescott HVAC Services LLC 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
