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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and likely 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 Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces wants to share some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know 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 greatest ways to save money on your utility bills 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 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
