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

Cooling

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

That’s why Point Heating & Cooling wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial 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 easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. 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 getting one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Point Heating & Cooling 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 AC work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
