Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe 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 space.
That’s why J.L. Brady Company LLC wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly throughout the summer season.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand 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 additional 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 or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule in the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing 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 identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, J.L. Brady Company LLC can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
