Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly 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 space.
That’s why Marcos AC & Heating wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.
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 helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Marcos AC & Heating can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
