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 divert you from getting to know 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 be 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 know the make and model of your system. This should be indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. 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—Ongoing maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC in Kingsville 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 working efficiently is to replace the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
