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 house. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert 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 make sure you keep comfortable in your new home through 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 located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to 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 find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are usually located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
