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

Cooling

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

That’s why Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly throughout the summer season.

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 problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. 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 off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
