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

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how different 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help be 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 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 challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. in Anaheim can give you the service that you need, and offer 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 working efficiently is to switch the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
