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

Cooling

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from buying furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure 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 have the make and model of your system. This should be indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Nisair Air Conditioning in Fort Pierce 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 running efficiently is to switch 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.
