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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new place. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from buying furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from learning how 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you remain comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

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 questions.

Get to Know the Thermostat

When it comes to maintaining 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 earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.

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. Air Temperature Control in Macon can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.

Don’t Forget Your Filter

Outside of regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to replace 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.
