AC and Furnace Replacement

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

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

That’s why Assured Appliance and Heating & Air wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

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 challenges, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch 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 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Assured Appliance and Heating & Air can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 AC work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
