AC and Furnace Replacement

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

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from getting to know how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you are moving into your new home during the hotter months, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you stay comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be located 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 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 earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Northern Comfort Inc in Mankato area can provide you with the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 running 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.
