Congratulations on buying your new home. Now that you’re getting settled in, it’s time to run through an AC system checklist. After all, your air conditioner is what keeps your new home comfortable and livable during Mesa’s hot summer months. Without it, you can’t enjoy your new property. Here at Honest Air Conditioning, there’s a checklist we recommend every new homeowner should run through to get to know the new air conditioner.

1. Check the AC’s Age

All air conditioners have a set lifespan. Typically, an AC unit will last between ten and twelve years before it needs to be replaced. However, factors like maintenance history and brand quality will impact the lifespan. Do a little digging to find out how old your new home’s AC is so you can plan ahead to have it replaced when the time comes.

2. Check the AC’s Energy Efficiency

Not all air conditioners are built alike, and some models are more energy-efficient than others. Your AC’s energy efficiency impacts everything from the amount of electricity it consumes to how much your monthly energy bill costs. You can gauge your unit’s energy efficiency by checking its SEER rating. Newer models are typically more energy-efficient than their older counterparts because they benefit from cutting-edge, energy-saving technology.

3. Get Warranty Information

Sometimes even well-cared-for air conditioners run into problems that require professional repairs. In this case, it’s best to have the warranty information on hand so you know what expenses are covered. Depending on the agreement, certain components or even the entire unit itself may be included in the warranty. Contact the company that installed the AC to learn more.

4. Set Up a Maintenance Plan

To get the most out of your new home’s AC, you should schedule routine maintenance. We recommend having your system tuned-up annually for the best results. Honest Air Conditioning’s maintenance services come with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau plus extended warranties on products and equipment.
