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 are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you stay comfortable in your new home through 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 keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Huntsville can provide you with 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 working efficiently is to replace the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
