Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Moon's Air wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand 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 call a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best 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 during the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Moon's Air can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
