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 place. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from buying furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from understanding 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you stay comfortable in your new home during 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 contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate 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 find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Scott Temperature in Lawrence can give you 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working 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.
