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

Cooling

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and likely 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 Forster Heating wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly this summer.

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 beneficial if you have any concerns or problems, 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 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 throughout 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 right away, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Forster Heating can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
