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 purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from learning how 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you remain comfortable in your new home during 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 concerns.
  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 look over your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Branson HVAC, LLC in Ridgedale and the Branson area can offer 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 operating 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.
