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 home. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from getting to know 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 keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  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 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 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—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Quality Solutions in Grove City can offer the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 working efficiently is to exchange 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.
