As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new home. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from understanding how different 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 special 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 are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be located 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 watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust 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 operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. in Muskogee can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 operating efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
