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

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you remain comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to 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 get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring 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 adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Lycoming Heating Company in Williamsport can provide you with the service that you need, and share 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 operating efficiently is to exchange 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.
