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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the home 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 Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

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 challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s useful 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
