Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 space.

That’s why J.L. Brady Company LLC wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know 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 contact a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch 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 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.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, J.L. Brady Company LLC can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 system work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
