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 house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from buying furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert 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 do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have 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 concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 working efficiently is to exchange 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.
