What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

Cooling

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

That’s why Airtronic Heating & Cooling wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set 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 getting one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Airtronic Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize 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 cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
