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

Cooling

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

That’s why Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to ensure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to know 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 contact a technician for further 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 establish 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 buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
