What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner? 07/20/2018 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc wants to share some simple tips to make 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? Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs 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 set 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 getting one. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 inflates your energy costs.
