As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how the 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 special attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you remain comfortable in your new home during 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 indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Wallpe Heating & Cooling in Greensburg can give you the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working efficiently is to switch the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
