Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.
That’s why Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a sense 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—Review the equipment itself to understand 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 contact a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule in 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
