Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly 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 space.

That’s why C&C Refrigeration Inc. wants to share some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more 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 set a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, C&C Refrigeration Inc. can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
