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

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from getting to know 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you stay comfortable in your new home through 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 indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. 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 even if you aren’t at home.
  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. Cooler Tymes LLC in Litchfield Park can offer the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to improve indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to switch the air filter. Air filters are usually located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
