Investigate your air conditioner

As you may have realized, understanding the basics of your air conditioner is a simple way to get started. Find where the system is located in your home, as well as a copy of the handbook. You can review all the major components and their associated terminology, which will be useful when you need to repair any issues or damage to the system.

Remember that mastering the basic factors of your HVAC system is no replacement for a qualified technician, so check out things and tell us when it’s time for the pros to manage it.

Adjust your thermostat

If you need to save some additional money on the weekends, change your thermostat to different settings. Smarter models include many programmable options that offer more control over your space’s temperature than ever before. You can command the thermostat to only use heating or cooling when you’re home and inside to enjoy it, so that when you’re off on business or a much-deserved vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy charges less expensive. Every degree makes a difference!

Start with the air filter

With all the other parts of your AC to maintain, it’s easy to fail to maintain your air filter also. But it’s an important, monthly task that can save you more than a little time and money down the road.

When you spruce or swap out your filter every month or so, it remains free from debris and is checked more often for noticeable wear. If you want to work on it yourself, feel free to do so, but don’t hesitate to schedule a technician for the peace of mind that your inspection was complete and accurate. With our team, you can lower the probability of your HVAC malfuctioning, and keep those air filters clean.

Go with a knowledgable technician

If you’re ready to move into your next home without any professional help regarding your AC, that’s perfect. But it’s a sad fact about home ownership that sooner or later, a problem will arise that you can’t and shouldn’t work by yourself. When that occurs, we hope you’ll call us for repair, maintenance, and even installation. Our trained staff can help you with all the most prevalent issues that befall your air conditioner, in a prompt way that protects your wallet.

We get that your comfort is a significant part of enjoying home ownership.
