Being a first-time homeowner is really 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 home.

That’s why Osceola Air, LLC wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting 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 routine maintenance to repairs, Osceola Air, LLC can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 AC work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
