AC and Furnace Replacement

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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new house. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.

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

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of 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 concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. in Napoleon can give you the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 operating efficiently is to replace 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.
