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

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space 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 Gillman Heating and Air wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.

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 problems, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Gillman Heating and Air can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
