Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 space.

That’s why Daves Diversified Services wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, 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 bill is to observe 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 off the bat, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Daves Diversified Services can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
