AC and Furnace Replacement

What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure 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 are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be indicated 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 managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning in Odessa can offer 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to switch 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.
