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

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of 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—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more 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 or sleeping. 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 immediately, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, M & S Heating & Air LLC can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
