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 house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from getting to know how different 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 special 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 have 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 monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain 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 critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. The Frazier Company in Omaha can offer the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 working 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.
