Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new home.
That’s why Siloam Springs Heating & AC wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Assess 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 further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly 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 wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Siloam Springs Heating & AC can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
- 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
