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 an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you remain comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be indicated 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 gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Custom Air Systems Inc in Indian River County can give you the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 working 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.
