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 getting furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know how different 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 stay comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. 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 key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning in West Valley City can provide you with the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 operating 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.
