As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from learning how 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help make sure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.
So, what should you be aware of?
- 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 contact 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 review your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Woody's Sudden Service Inc in Manassas can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to improve 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 working efficiently is to replace 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.
