As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack 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 special attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you keep comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.
So, what should you be aware of?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. E.B. Air, LLC in East Bernard can give you the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to increase indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are usually located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
