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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and possibly 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 space.

That’s why Gillman Heating and Air wants to offer some simple tips to be 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—Take a look at 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 contact 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 away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set 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 smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Gillman Heating and Air 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
