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

Cooling

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

That’s why Kowalski Heating & Cooling wants to provide some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

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 helpful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy costs is to watch 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 in the week and not worry about constantly 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Kowalski Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand 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 AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
