As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from understanding 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 make sure you keep comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.
So, what should you be aware of?
- 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 reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. 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 even if you aren’t at home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning in West Valley City can give you 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 running 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.
