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 fixing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from learning how all of 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 special attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you remain 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 located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to examine 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—Routine maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Northern Comfort Inc in Mankato area can offer the service that you need, and offer 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 operating 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.
