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 owning a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your utility bills is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 immediately, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize 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 reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
