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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and likely 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 AC Sales wants to share some simple tips to make sure 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 know 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 more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule throughout the week and not worry about constantly 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, AC Sales can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize 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 AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
