As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new place. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert 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 make sure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout 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 questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust 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 operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Faust Air Conditioning and Heating in Wharton can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 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.
