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

Cooling

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

That’s why James Heating & A/C, Inc wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly throughout the summer season.

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 helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or call 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 set 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 purchasing one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, James Heating & A/C, Inc can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
