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 having 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 make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

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 helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule during 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 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 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 cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
