When you purchase a new home, there is a lot to learn about your new place. You will need to get used to the ins and outs of the house and what maintenance is needed right away. One of the biggest systems in your home is your HVAC system. It is important that you know how to care for and maintain it so you can get as many years as possible out of your HVAC system before you are faced with replacement. Absolute P&M Services is here to share some tips to ensure your AC system is working properly from the first day you move in.
Know How Old, Warranty & Maintenance History of HVAC System
The first thing you are going to want to do is get to know your system. You need to know the history of maintenance and other pertinent information.
– AC Warranty: You will want to know what kind of warranty you still have on the unit in your home. Hopefully, there is still some time on the warranty, and you have some coverage. If this is the case, you will want to know what kind of coverage you have in the event that you need it.
– AC Maintenance: Hopefully, the previous owners have kept a maintenance log that gives you the information you need about the care and maintenance that the unit has received. If there have ever been any problems with the unit, you will want to know about them. It will be important for you to keep a maintenance log moving forward as well. If the unit hasn’t had its routine maintenance appointment done yet, it isn’t too late to schedule one and make sure the unit is working properly and no repairs are needed.
Is it Worth Replacing AC Unit?
When you are first settling into your home and thinking about the AC system, you may want to consider replacing the AC system if it is old and on its way out. If you are purchasing an older home, there is a chance that the original AC unit is still in the home. You may find that replacing it with a newer, more efficient one is the best scenario. Just make sure that you are choosing the right system for the home. You will need to work with a HVAC professional to help you determine what size the unit needs to be as well as ensure the unit is installed properly. When you replace an older AC unit with a new one, you will find that you save significantly on energy costs because of the boosted efficiency.
