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

July 20, 2018

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 addressing the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you remain comfortable in your new home throughout 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 located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Premium Air Services LLC in Tomball can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 operating 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.
