As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. 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 distract 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 ensure you keep 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 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 sustaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter 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 identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning in Bishop can provide you with 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 ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to exchange 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.
