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

July 20, 2018

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 home.

That’s why Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills 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 arrange a schedule throughout 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 immediately, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Gee & Missler 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 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 AC work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
