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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and maybe 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 space.

That’s why Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working 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 useful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or contact 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 set a schedule throughout the week and not worry about always 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 immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
