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

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know how all of 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 make sure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be indicated 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 maintaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can earn 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—Routine maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. True Home Heating and Air Conditioning in Irvine can offer the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 running efficiently is to switch 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.
