Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 house.

That’s why Ocean Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Ocean Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know 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 reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
