Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Total Comfort Solutions wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills 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 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 buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Total Comfort Solutions can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
