Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and likely 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 home.
That’s why Gilray Heating and Cooling wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.
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 beneficial if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly 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 off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Gilray Heating and Cooling can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s helpful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
