As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how different 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 extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you stay comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining 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 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—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Mobile can offer the service that you need, and share 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 running 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.
