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

Cooling

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

That’s why Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating 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 problems, 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 costs 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 during the week and not worry about regularly 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 identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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.
