Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and maybe 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 house.
That’s why Ilten's Incorporated wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.
What do you need to know?
- Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
- Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Ilten's Incorporated 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 decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
