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 an abundance of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep 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 keeping indoor comfort and managing 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 adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Temp Air System Inc in La Puente can offer the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working efficiently is to replace 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.
