As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new house. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If it’s summer when you are moving into your new home, you’ll want to pay extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring 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 regulate the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning in Pflugerville can give you the service that you need, and discuss 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 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.
