Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely 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 Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to know 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 more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set 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.
  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 selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 raises your energy costs.
