As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from buying furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding how different 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 keep 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 located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Miller Climate Control LLC in Georgetown can give you the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
