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

July 20, 2018

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 space.

That’s why Central Air LLC wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills 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 arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 immediately, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Central Air LLC 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
