Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 Stanford Heating & Cooling wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to understand 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 contact a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest 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 arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
- Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Stanford Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
