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 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 Ambient Air wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you have a sense 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 understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be gone. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish 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 right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Ambient Air 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 swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
