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

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 house.

That’s why PWA Heating & Cooling Inc wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly this summer.

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 reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor 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 buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s useful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
