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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new place. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you are moving into your new home during the hotter months, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you stay comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be indicated 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 maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. 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 key to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC in Hamilton can offer the service that you need, and discuss 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.
