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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new place. There may be several tasks 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 getting to know how different 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 be sure you remain comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review 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—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Cool Air Solutions in Murrieta can offer the service that you need, and offer 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 running efficiently is to exchange 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.
