Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines The air conditioning unit is the mechanism that produces cooler air. The air conditioning system involves everything inside your home including the contents, drapes, and windows. Your home air conditioning is a closed system, which means that the interior air is continually recycled and cooled until the desired air temperature is reached. Warm outside air disrupts the system and makes cooling impossible. Therefore, you should keep all windows closed. The heat from the sun shining through windows with open drapes is intense enough to overcome the cooling effect of the air conditioning unit. For best results, close the drapes on these windows. Vents Opening and closing the vents can adjust the airflow in your home and registers. Century Communities recommends that you contact a qualified HVAC professional to make adjustments to balance the airflow in your home. If needed, this will be done once at no charge to our homeowners within the first year of occupancy in their new home. Any other adjustments are not covered under Century Communities Limited Warranty. Compressor Level Maintain the air conditioning compressor in a level position to maintain efficient performance and prevent premature damage to the equipment. Manufacturer’s Instructions The manufacturer’s manual specifies maintenance for the condenser. Review and follow these points carefully as part of maintaining your air conditioning system. Air Conditioner Condensation Condensation lines will clog under normal use. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to keep these lines clear. If your HVAC unit is in the attic, there is an emergency condensation drain that will drain down the outside of your house should the primary drain become clogged. Water draining from the emergency drain is an indication that the primary drain is not working. Call for service immediately. Temperature Variations Temperatures may vary from room to room by several degrees Fahrenheit. This is due to such variables as floor plan, orientation of the home on the lot, type and use of window coverings, and traffic through the home. For example, rooms that have more exterior walls or are located above unheated areas like the garage will have higher temperature fluctuations than interior spaces over heated areas. Century Communities Limited Warranty Guidelines The air conditioning system should maintain a temperature of 78 degrees or a differential of 15 degrees from the outside temperature, measured in the center of each room at a height of five feet above the floor. Lower temperature settings are often possible, but not Air Filter Ensure to change out air filters monthly.
