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

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe 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 house.

That’s why Wolfe & Sons Inc wants to offer 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—Take a look at 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 additional 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 away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange 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 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 selected in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Wolfe & Sons Inc can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 inflates your energy costs.
