Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 house.
That’s why Gordon Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule during 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 right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Gordon Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
