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

That’s why Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc wants to provide some simple tips to be sure 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 contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch 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 throughout the week and not worry about constantly 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 off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
