Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe 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 Branson HVAC, LLC wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.

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 useful 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 best ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Branson HVAC, LLC can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
