After the boxes are unpacked and the furniture put into place, you probably want to sit back, relax and enjoy your new Rocky Mountain home.
With the summer temperatures lurking like the storm clouds off the tawny hills of the eastern plains, your Boulder air conditioning is an essential part of your home’s basic functions. So after your big move in, you may want to assess the functionality, efficiency, and age of your new home’s air conditioner.
Check the Serial Number
Have two eyes and access to the internet? Then even you can take the first step in making sure you have the right air conditioner for your new home’s needs. Take a quick peek around your unit and look for the model number tag. From there, jot down the serial number, make and model, and the date if there is one written.
Now put in the number in an internet search and look up if there are any common repairs, recalls, or other issues. The age of the unit is also crucial—an air conditioner shouldn’t be older than 20 years old, and many are replaced around the ten-year mark. Ask one of our professionals to see how long your unit should last.
Watch and Listen
If the age checks out okay, listen for loud noises, and watch for excessively high energy bills as these could be a sign of wear, age, and inefficiency. If you notice anything unusual it’s probably time to schedule a home AC repair.
