AC and Furnace Replacement

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

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

That’s why Honke Heating & AC wants to share some simple tips to ensure 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—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or issues, need to look up the manual or call a technician for more help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the best ways to save money on your utility bills is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange 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 identified in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Honke Heating & AC can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We realize life gets busy, so it’s beneficial 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 cooling system work harder which shrinks efficiency and increases your energy costs.
