As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from getting to know how the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you are moving into your new home during the hotter months, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what do you need to 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 reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. J & J Air Conditioning in Eastland can provide you with 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 regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to exchange 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.
