Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor 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 in the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
