Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly throughout the summer season.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful 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 monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule in the week and not worry about always 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, M & S Heating & Air LLC can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
