Investigate your cooling system

As you might imagine, studying the basics of your AC is a good way to start your journey. Find where the equipment is located in your space, as well as a copy of the guidebook. You can evaluate all the core elements and their associated terminology, which will be helpful when the time comes to work on any issues or damage to the machine.

Remember that mastering the basic factors of your HVAC system is not a replacement for a trained pro, so supervise things and find us when it’s time for the Experts to manage it.

Work with your thermostat

If you want to save a bit of added money on the weekends, move your thermostat to different settings. More updated models include some programmable options that allow you more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can make the thermostat to only use heating or cooling when you’re home and there to enjoy it, so that when you’re off on business or a nice vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy bills low. Every degree makes a difference!

Check the air filter

With a variety of parts of your AC to maintain, it’s easy to neglect to care for your air filter too. But it’s an important, monthly task that can save you more than a little time and money later on.

When you cleanse or switch out your filter every one to three months, it goes on free from debris and is checked more often for normal wear. If you want to work on it yourself, feel free to do so, but don’t hesitate to bring in a technician for the peace of mind that your inspection was comprehensive and accurate. With our help, you can lower the prospect of your HVAC having serious issues, and keep those air filters clear.

Find a qualified company

If you can head into your new home without any professional help concerning your cooling system, that’s great to hear. But it’s a regrettable fact for homeowners that one day, an issue will arise that you can’t and shouldn’t correct alone. When that occurs, we hope you’ll keep us in mind for repair, maintenance, and even installation. Our expert staff can help you with all the most common troubles that befall your air conditioner, in a timely way that keeps your budget in check.

We understand that your comfort is a significant part of enjoying home ownership.
