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

Cooling

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

That’s why Durable Service wants to share some simple tips to be sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

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 useful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy costs is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule in 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 ongoing maintenance to repairs, Durable Service can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 increases your energy costs.
