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

July 20, 2018

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

That’s why Breathe Healthier Air 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—Take a look at the equipment itself to acknowledge 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 contact a technician for more 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 arrange a schedule in 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Breathe Healthier Air can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 AC work harder which decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
