Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house 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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning wants to share some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch 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 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 right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
