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

Being a first-time homeowner is very 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 space.

That’s why Brookwood Inc wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it operating smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to understand the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or challenges, 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 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 set 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 off the bat, it’s smart to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Brookwood Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 system work harder which reduces efficiency and increases your energy costs.
