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

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and likely 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 Luikart Heating & Cooling wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Take a look at the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be beneficial if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor 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 during the week and not worry about regularly 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 off the bat, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Luikart Heating & Cooling can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
