AC and Furnace Replacement

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

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and maybe 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 house.

That’s why Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning wants to share some simple tips to make sure you have a grasp of your air conditioning system and how to keep it working 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 helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional 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 away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can establish a schedule during the week and not worry about always 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 helpful to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know 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 AC work harder which reduces efficiency and inflates your energy costs.
