As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new place. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to addressing 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 make 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 have the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be a great tool. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and identify any issues before they become costlier to fix. Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco can provide you with 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 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.
