What first-time homeowners should know about their air conditioner

If you’re a new homeowner, you might be excited. But the position can be paralyzing as well, especially as you do your best to find out everything your space needs to stay in great condition. It can feel like there’s no way to know you have everything covered. That’s where our Experts can help. When it comes to keeping your cooling system in great shape, here are some of the easiest things you can look into to get to know your air conditioner, which will help prepare your home for annual maintenance, as well as identifying the issues that need the touch of a licensed pro. Keep reading below to check them out!

Learn about your HVAC system

As you might imagine, studying the basics of your HVAC system is a good way to begin. Find where your HVAC is placed in your home, as well as a copy of its manual. You can examine all the core components and their associated terminology, which will be useful when it’s time to figure out any problems or damage to the equipment.

Remember that knowing the basic components of your HVAC system is no replacement for a trained expert, so monitor things and find us when it’s time for the pros to manage it.

Adjust your thermostat

If you want to save some added money on the weekends, adjust your thermostat to different settings. More updated models include a variety of programmable options that create more control over your space’s temperature than ever before. You can command the thermostat to only run heating or cooling when you’re home and ready to enjoy it, so that when you’re away on business or a much-deserved vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy bills low. Every degree makes a difference!

Don’t forget about your air filter

With a variety of parts of your AC to keep track of, it’s easy to fail to maintain your air filter too. But it’s a significant, monthly project that can save you more than a little time and money later on.

When you clean or switch out your filter every month or so, it lives on free from debris and is more regularly checked for normal wear. If you want to take a look yourself, don’t hesitate, but don’t hesitate to bring in an expert for the peace of mind that your inspection was exhaustive and accurate. With our pros, you can diminish the prospect of your HVAC breaking down, and keep those air filters fresh.

Find a knowledgable professional

If you’re able to head into your new home without any skilled help for your cooling system, that’s great to hear.
