As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new place. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from learning how the 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 make sure you remain comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.
So, what should you be aware of?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you know 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 keeping 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 when you are away from the home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. AZ Air Conditioning and Heating in Los Angeles can give you 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 operating efficiently is to switch 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.
