What first-time homeowners need to find out about their air conditioner

If you’re a new homeowner, you’re probably quite excited. But the sensation can be daunting as well, especially as you attempt to keep track of everything your home needs to stay in nice condition. It can look like it’s not possible to know everything’s covered. That’s where you can turn to our Experts. When it comes to keeping your air conditioner in perfect shape, here are a few of the easiest things you can look into to familiarize yourself with your AC, which will help you get ready for seasonal maintenance, as well as determining the situations that need the touch of a qualified expert. Keep going to check them out!

Investigate your cooling system

As you can imagine, studying the basics of your air conditioner is a good way to get started. Find where the equipment is based in your space, as well as a copy of its guide. You can analyze all the major features and their associated terminology, which will be convenient when the time comes to fix any problems or damage to the machine.

Remember that knowing the basic features of your HVAC system isn’t a replacement for a qualified pro, so watch things and reach out when it’s time for the pros to handle it.

Change your thermostat

If you’re ready to save some additional money on the weekends, change your thermostat to settings closer to the weather outside. Smarter models include a selection of programmable solutions that allow you more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can schedule the thermostat to only operate your HVAC when you’re home and inside to enjoy it, so that when you’re off on business or a needed vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy bills low. Every degree matters!

Start with the air filter

With the whole list of parts of your air conditioner to take care of, it’s easy to fail to maintain your air filter also. But it’s an important, monthly project that can save you a lot of time and money in the future.

When you clean or swap out your filter every one to three months, it stays free from debris and is checked more regularly for usual wear. If you want to inspect it yourself, go ahead, but don’t hesitate to contact a technician for the peace of mind that your inspection was exhaustive and accurate. With our pros, you can reduce the probability of your HVAC malfuctioning, and keep those air filters clear.

Work with a qualified company
