Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.
That’s why Vogts Heating & Air wants to offer some simple tips to ensure 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—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. 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 getting one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Vogts Heating & Air can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize 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 reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
