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

That’s why Boyles Mechanical LLC wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of 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 know 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 easiest ways to save money on your energy costs 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 establish 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Boyles Mechanical LLC can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
