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 purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.

Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how all of 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 special attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you remain comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you be aware of?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know 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 concerns.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to work 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 offer some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to switch 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.
