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 getting furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first house 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 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 stay comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you have 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 concerns.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to examine your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to increase indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
