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

July 20, 2018

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

That’s why Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating wants to share 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—Review the equipment itself to understand 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 additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to observe the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set 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 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 identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating can help with all your air conditioner needs 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
