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

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space 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 Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc 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 acknowledge 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 call a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange 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 purchasing 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 regular maintenance to repairs, Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
