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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how all of the 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you remain comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  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 contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can earn 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—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Bell Air Conditioning Inc. in Belton can give you the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 exchange 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.
