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

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

That’s why North Mechanical Heating and Cooling wants to provide 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—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best 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 establish a schedule in the week and not worry about constantly 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 routine maintenance to repairs, North Mechanical Heating and Cooling can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
