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

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

That’s why Olde Towne Heating & Air wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review 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 contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill 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 arrange 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Olde Towne Heating & Air can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know 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 reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
