It can appear like it’s not possible to know you’ve got everything covered. That’s where we can help. When it comes to keeping your air conditioner in ideal shape, here are several of the most basic things you can act on to to learn more about your AC, which will help prepare you for annual maintenance, as well as understanding the situations that need the help of a qualified expert. Read on to check them out!

Research your air conditioner

As you can imagine, understanding the basics of your cooling system is a logical way to start your journey. Find where the equipment is placed in your home, as well as a copy of the handbook. You can examine all the major components and their associated terminology, which will be convenient when it’s time to work on any problems or damage to the equipment.

Remember that learning the basic components of your HVAC system is no replacement for a trained expert, so watch things and reach out when it’s time for the specialists to manage it.

Change your thermostat

If you’re ready to save a bit of added money on the weekends, change your thermostat to better settings. Updated models include some programmable solutions that create more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can make the thermostat to only operate your system when you’re home and ready to enjoy it, so that when you’re away on business or a nice vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy usage low. Every degree counts!

Check your air filter

With so many parts of your AC to maintain, it’s easy to neglect to help your air filter too. But it’s an important, monthly project that can save you a lot of time and money later on.

When you cleanse or swap out your filter every month or so, it remains free from debris and is checked more regularly for wear and tear. If you want to take a look yourself, go ahead, but don’t hesitate to call a professional for the peace of mind that your inspection was thorough and accurate. With our pros, you can avoid the risk of your air conditioner having serious issues, and keep those air filters fresh.
