Investigate your cooling system

As you might imagine, understanding the basics of your air conditioner is an easy way to start your journey. Find where the system is placed in your home, as well as a copy of the manual. You can review all the major features and their associated terminology, which will be useful when you have to repair any issues or damage to the system.

Remember that mastering the basic features of your HVAC system is not a replacement for a qualified expert, so keep an eye on things and let us know when it’s time for the pros to manage it.

Work with your thermostat

If you’re ready to save some additional money on the weekends, move your thermostat to different settings. Newer models include a variety of programmable choices that offer more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can schedule the thermostat to only operate heating or cooling when you’re home and present to enjoy it, so that when you’re out on business or a needed vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy usage low. Every degree makes a difference!

Don’t forget about the system air filter

With all the other parts of your AC to maintain, it’s easy to fail to help your air filter too. But it’s a critical, monthly function that can save you more than a little time and money as time goes by.

When you care for or swap out your filter every one to three months, it remains free from debris and is checked more often for noticeable wear. If you want to try a DIY inspection, feel free to do so, but don’t hesitate to find an expert for the peace of mind that your inspection was complete and accurate. With our pros, you can lessen the risk of your cooling system having serious issues, and keep those air filters clear.

Go with a qualified company
