AC and Furnace Replacement

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 home. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from understanding how all of the 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 ensure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know 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 watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over 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 work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. County Line Mechanical LLC in Reinholds can offer the service that you need, and offer 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 running efficiently is to switch 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.
