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

Cooling

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC wants to share some simple tips to ensure you understand 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—Assess the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish 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 getting 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 selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
