Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe 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 house.

That’s why Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to know 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.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc. can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s useful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
