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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new place. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you remain 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 labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and watching 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 operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Dynamic Comfort Solutions in Locust can provide you with the service that you need, and offer 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 running 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.
