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 place. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from getting to know how different 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you stay comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of 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 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 examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Cytech Heating & Cooling in the Upper Rio Grande Valley can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss 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.
