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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new house. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from buying furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from learning how 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 remain comfortable in your new home during 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 concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the 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. C-N-O Comfort Zone in Saint Peters 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.
  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 typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
