As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new home. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding how the 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you remain comfortable in your new home through 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 reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
- 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 examine your thermostat to understand where you can find 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 run properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Air Service Co. in Muldrow can provide you with the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 working efficiently is to replace 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.
