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

July 20, 2018

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

That’s why Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly 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 regular maintenance to repairs, Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
