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

Cooling

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

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how 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 special attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you stay comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be located 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 maintaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. McCune Heating & Cooling in Augusta 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 regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to replace the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
