Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space 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 Knoechel Heating Company 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 during the hotter months.

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 helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills 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 establish 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Knoechel Heating Company 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
