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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely 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 home.

That’s why Abilene Air-Tech Inc wants to offer some simple tips to make sure 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—Assess the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial 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 observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule throughout 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Abilene Air-Tech Inc can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
