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 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 Mustang Mechanical wants to provide some simple tips to ensure you understand 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—Review the equipment itself to know 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 contact a technician for further help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away or sleeping. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule in the week and not worry about always 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 right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From routine maintenance to repairs, Mustang Mechanical 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 traded when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which decreases efficiency and raises your energy costs.
