Research your cooling system

As you can imagine, studying the basics of your AC is a great way to get started. Find where the equipment is placed in your house, as well as a copy of the handbook. You can analyze all the basic features and their associated terminology, which will be helpful when it’s time to fix any problems or damage to the machine.

Remember that mastering the basic features of your HVAC system isn’t a replacement for an experienced pro, so monitor things and reach out when it’s time for the pros to work on it.

Work with your thermostat

If you’re hoping to save a little extra money on the weekends, change your thermostat to settings closer to the weather outside. Smarter models include a selection of programmable solutions that create more control over your house’s temperature than ever before. You can schedule the thermostat to only run heating or cooling when you’re home and present to enjoy it, so that when you’re away on business or a much-deserved vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy costs cheaper. Every degree makes a difference!

Don’t forget about the air filter

With so many parts of your HVAC system to maintain, it’s easy to forget to maintain your air filter too. But it’s an important, monthly project that can save you quite a bit of time and money as time goes by.

When you spruce or switch out your filter every one to three months, it lives on free from debris and is more regularly checked for usual wear. If you want to work on it yourself, feel free to do so, but don’t hesitate to bring in an expert for the peace of mind that your inspection was comprehensive and accurate. With our pros, you can reduce the risk of your cooling system breaking down, and keep those air filters clean.
