What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

Cooling

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new space.

That’s why Arrings A/C & Heating wants to share some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to acknowledge 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 additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly 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 immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Arrings A/C & Heating can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s helpful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be replaced 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.
