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 an abundance of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing 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 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 ensure you remain 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 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 challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. McFadden Heating & Cooling in Dresden can offer 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 regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to replace 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.
