Research your AC

As you may have realized, learning the basics of your HVAC system is a logical way to begin. Find where the system is based in your space, as well as a copy of the system’s guide. You can go over all the core elements and their associated terminology, which will be helpful when you need to work on any issues or damage to the machine.

Remember that mastering the basic elements of your HVAC system isn’t a replacement for a trained pro, so watch things and tell us when it’s time for the pros to handle it.

Adjust your thermostat

If you’re ready to save a little extra money on the weekends, move your thermostat to the correct settings. Smarter models include a selection of programmable solutions that give you more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can command the thermostat to only use heating or cooling when you’re home and there to enjoy it, so that when you’re out on business or a deserved vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy usage from climbing. Every degree makes a difference!

Start with the air filter

With all the other parts of your heating and cooling system to keep track of, it’s easy to forget to maintain your air filter as well. But it’s an important, monthly function that can save you quite a bit of time and money down the road.

When you spruce or switch out your filter every couple of months, it lives on free from debris and is more regularly checked for noticeable wear. If you want to take a look yourself, don’t hesitate, but don’t hesitate to call a professional for the peace of mind that your inspection was comprehensive and accurate. With our help, you can lower the probability of your cooling system having serious issues, and keep those air filters clear.

Choose a licensed professional

If you’re ready to settle into your newly purchased home without any skilled help for your cooling system, that’s great. But it’s a sad reality about home ownership that sooner or later, an issue will arise that you can’t and shouldn’t correct by yourself.
