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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new house. There an abundance of items 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 learning how all of the 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 keep 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 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 keeping indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can find 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—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC in Vancouver can give you 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 routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running 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.
