As a first-time homebuyer, you’re starting to get settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from getting to know 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 make sure you stay comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what do you need to know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be indicated 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 sustaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust 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 pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant can offer the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working efficiently is to switch 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.
