Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new home.
That’s why Hopper Heating and Air wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you understand 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 know 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 call a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule during 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Hopper Heating and Air can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
- Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
