As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new home. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from understanding how different components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be labeled 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 maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC in Booneville can offer the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working 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.
