As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new place. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first home is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from understanding 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 even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help be sure you stay comfortable in your new home during 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 reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to sustaining indoor comfort and managing energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find 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 vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to run properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. KDM Service Corporation in Tuscaloosa can provide you with the service that you need, and offer some tips on efficiency and how to increase 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.
