AC and Furnace Replacement

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

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely 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 house.

That’s why Colvin's Heating and Cooling wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly during the hotter months.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at 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 further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. 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 off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Colvin's Heating and Cooling can help with all your air conditioner needs or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know 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 cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
