AC and Furnace Replacement

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

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

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  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 contact 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 extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find 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—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Concepts of Middle Georgia in Middle Georgia can give you the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working 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.
