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

July 20, 2018

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

That’s why Davis Heating & Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to be 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?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or call a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Davis Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s useful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
