As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how different components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you remain comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.
So, what do you need to know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be labeled 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 keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. B&D Air Conditioning in Safford can provide you with 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 operating 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.
