As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding how all of 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 make sure you stay comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. 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 even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Bon Air Service Company in Grand Prairie can offer the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to replace 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.
