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

Cooling

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

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from getting to know how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to 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 one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find 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 run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Woody's Sudden Service Inc in Manassas Park can offer the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to switch 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.
