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 tackling the landscape.

Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding 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 ensure you remain comfortable in your new home during 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 indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning in Winnipeg can provide you with 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to replace 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.
