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

Cooling

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

That’s why B & B Heating & Cooling wants to provide some simple tips to make 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—Review the equipment itself to know 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 reach out to a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule during the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting 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 chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, B & B Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 traded 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.
