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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from buying furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how different 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you keep comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find 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—Routine maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Superior Comfort Systems in Hendersonville can give you 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to exchange 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.
