What first-time homeowners have to know about their air conditioner

If you’re a recent homeowner, you’re probably quite excited. But the circumstances can be stressful as well, especially as you work to find out everything your property needs to stay in good condition. It can look like there’s no way to know you’ve got everything covered. That’s where we can help. When it comes to keeping your AC in great condition, here are some of the easiest things you can do to familiarize yourself with your system, which will help you get ready for routine maintenance, as well as understanding the complications that need the touch of a qualified expert. Keep reading below to check them out!

Research your cooling system

As you may have figured, knowing the basics of your air conditioner is a logical way to get started. Find where the equipment is located in your house, as well as a copy of the system’s guide. You can examine all the major components and their associated terminology, which will be helpful when the time comes to repair any problems or damage to the system.

Remember that understanding the basic elements of your HVAC system is not a replacement for an experienced technician, so check out things and tell us when it’s time for the professionals to work on it.

Work with your thermostat

If you’re hoping to save a bit of additional money on the weekends, adjust your thermostat to the correct settings. More updated models include a variety of programmable solutions that create more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can program the thermostat to only operate your HVAC when you’re home and ready to enjoy it, so that when you’re out on business or a nice vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy bills down. Every degree matters!

Check your air filter

With so many parts of your AC to keep track of, it’s easy to fail to care for your air filter too. But it’s a critical, monthly function that can save you a lot of time and money later on.

When you spruce or swap out your filter every one to three months, it stays free from debris and is checked more regularly for noticeable wear. If you want to try a DIY inspection, don’t hesitate, but don’t hesitate to schedule a professional for the peace of mind that your inspection was thorough and accurate. With our team, you can avoid the prospect of your HVAC malfuctioning, and keep those air filters clean.

Find a knowledgable company

If you’re able to move into your next home without any trained help regarding your HVAC system, that’s awesome.
