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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from buying furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If it’s summer when you are moving into your new home, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you stay comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Alltemp Comfort Services LLC in Winnsboro can give you the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to increase indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to switch the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
