Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and possibly 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 house.
That’s why Kapaun & Brown Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful 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 energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout the week and not worry about always 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 helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Kapaun & Brown Inc. can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
