Air Conditioner Usage Tips for The New Homeowner

Did you just purchase a home in Orange County that has central air conditioning? If so, congratulations!

Buying a home is one of the very best investments you can make and you can also keep your central air conditioner running smoothly for years to come by following the tips in this article.

Tip #1 – Keep Up with Routine Maintenance

As with any other piece of machinery that you’ve owned over the years, your central air conditioner is also a piece of machinery that you should keep maintained with routine maintenance.

Routine maintenance by a professional air conditioning and heating company like Air Care Heating & Air Conditioning will help us to spot any problems when they arise and potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars in repair costs.

Tip #2 – Seal Your Home from Drafts

One of the best things that you can do from the moment that you first move into your Orange County home is to seal it for drafts. Doing this will eliminate heat from entering your home and cool air escaping when you have your air conditioner running.

Tip #3 – Invest in A Programmable Thermostat

Thanks to the age that we live in, you can easily purchase a programmable thermostat online for under $300 and have confidence that your home will always be heated or cooled at an optimal temperature.

Tip #4 – Increase Your Insulation

Buying an older home? If so, it may not have the best insulation and studies have shown that poorly insulated homes suffer from a lot of heating and cooling losses during the year.

There are a wide variety of energy-efficient insulation options to choose from. You can opt for spray-in insulation to eco-friendly insulation.

Tip #5 – Change Your Air Conditioner Air Filter Often

A dirty air filter can greatly impact your air conditioner's performance and make it work longer / harder to cool your home.

What’s great about air filters is that they are so inexpensive these days and cost less than $10 to replace.

To remind yourself to change your air conditioner's air filter just set yourself a calendar reminder so you can remember to change it on a monthly basis.
