AC and Furnace Replacement

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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There are likely a lot 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 divert you from getting to know how the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If it’s summer when you are moving into your new home, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you stay comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be located 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 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.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance can offer 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 regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are usually located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
