Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new home.
That’s why Jett's Heating & Air Inc. wants to share some simple tips to make sure 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—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further 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 away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange 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 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 regular maintenance to repairs, Jett's Heating & Air Inc. can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
