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 an abundance of items on your to-do list, from buying furniture to addressing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding how 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 remain comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have 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 sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Alliance Team in Saint Charles can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 operating efficiently is to replace 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.
