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

Owning your first home 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’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you remain comfortable in your new home during 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 located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can earn 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 vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air-Dynamics Inc in San Angelo can provide you with 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 operating efficiently is to exchange 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.
