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 being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 swapped 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.
