As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new house. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from getting to know how the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you remain comfortable in your new home through 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 maintaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust 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 work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Solar Air Inc. in Fort Lauderdale can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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 replace 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.
