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

Cooling

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely 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 PWA Heating & Cooling Inc wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to understand 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 reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule in 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 selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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.
