What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you stay comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you 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 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 monitoring 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—Routine maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Summit Air Conditioning Inc in West Palm Beach can offer the service that you need, and offer 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 typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
