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

Cooling

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

That’s why Strine's Heating & A/C Inc wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working 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 useful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill 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 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 off the bat, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Strine's Heating & A/C 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 cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
