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

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 house.

That’s why Freed Heating & Air Conditioning wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to understand 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 call a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor 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 throughout the week and not worry about always adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider purchasing 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
