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

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack 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 even more 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 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 questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can find 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—Routine maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning in Wyandotte can offer the service that you need, and share 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 running efficiently is to replace 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.
