AC and Furnace Replacement

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

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

That’s why Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning wants to offer some simple tips to be sure you have a sense of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working 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 beneficial if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or reach out to a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your energy costs 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 in the week and not worry about constantly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s helpful to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner issues 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 replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your system work harder which reduces efficiency and raises your energy costs.
