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 buying furniture to addressing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from getting to know how different components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If it’s summer when you are moving into your new home, you’ll want to pay extra attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you stay 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 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 concerns.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain 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 key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. The Frazier Company in Omaha can provide you with the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance 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 switch 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.
