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

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding how all of 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 make sure you stay comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find 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—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc in Phoenix can give you the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to switch 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.
