Find out about your cooling system

As you may have figured, studying the basics of your AC is a good way to begin. Find where the equipment is placed in your home, as well as a copy of its manual. You can go over all the basic features and their associated terminology, which will be helpful when the time comes to fix any issues or damage to the equipment.

Adjust your thermostat

If you’re hoping to save some added money on the weekends, move your thermostat to different settings. Modern models include a variety of programmable options that create more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can program the thermostat to only run heating or cooling when you’re home and present to enjoy it, so that when you’re off on business or a needed vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy bills low. Every degree counts!

Remember the air filter

With a variety of parts of your heating and cooling system to look after, it’s easy to neglect to maintain your air filter too. But it’s a significant, monthly task that can save you quite a bit of time and money as time goes by.

When you care for or swap out your filter every couple of months, it goes on free from debris and is more regularly checked for usual wear. If you want to work on it yourself, don’t hesitate, but don’t hesitate to contact a professional for the peace of mind that your inspection was complete and accurate. With our help, you can avoid the risk of your HVAC system malfuctioning, and keep those air filters clear.
