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 house and the new responsibilities of owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. wants to share some simple tips to ensure you understand 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 understand 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 contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest 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 during the week and not worry about constantly 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
