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 home. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know 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 keep comfortable in your new home through 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 get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain 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—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. D & D Heating & AC in Brighton can offer the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 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.
