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

Cooling

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe 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 Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc wants to provide some simple tips to make 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—Review the equipment itself to acknowledge the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish 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 buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 inflates your energy costs.
