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

Being a first-time homeowner is extremely exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new home.

That’s why Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning wants to share some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly during the hotter months.

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 useful 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 easiest 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 regularly 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 wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s helpful 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 system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
