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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and possibly 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 Point Heating & Cooling wants to share some simple tips to ensure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.

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 helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or call a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best 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 throughout the week and not worry about always adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Point Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
